My niece is getting married in a few months, and she and her fella enjoy card games. This was made as a gift for their wedding shower. Scrap walnut, a slice of curly maple in the lid, maple splines in the corners, and some poplar for the bottom. Finished with three coats of wipe-on polyurethane.

Doug, nice work here. This will make a thoughtful and well loved present. I like having the die down the middle. Good thought. Just for comparison and as an idea starter, you might want to look here Keep boxing and keep posting.

Nicely done; it makes a very practical wedding gift. I know many couples who like to get together to play cards because it’s an inexpensive pastime where they can to enjoy time with thier friends. I remember when my wife first started out 42 years ago we enjoyed a good bridge game with our friends. It really makes a nice gift.
