i made this at home, out of some left over pine. i didn’t have very many tools to use, so i did what i could, i dont have a dado blade set for my tablesaw, so i made the rabbets with my router and a strait bit. i put a miniwax stain with sanding sealer and laquer on the outside.

up until this nov. all my dadoes have been done with just a saw blade… necessity is indeed the mother of invention. Good job.

just came up on the dice roll feature …very nice box and pine is so versatile. I usually make “sample” pieces for my customers to approve from Pine instead of hardwoods and most ppl grab my Pine samples instead of proceeding with the hardwoods….Got to love customers !
