Wooden Dice - Large Dice Set

Perfect for dice lovers or just for decoration in any room in the house,
whether displayed in a bookcase, the game room, stimulating conversation
in the Man Cave or as a paperweight on your desk. This set of dice makes a
perfect Stocking Stuffer for the adult who loves board games.

Made from American Black Walnut with Maple face grain furniture plugs.

Finished with two coats of Tung oil to highlight the beautiful wood grain.
Dimensions of the dice: 2 ½” cube.

The drill fixture top plate was made from ½” hardboard. An adjustable leg

was used as a clamp held in the riser block with a tee nut for the threaded hole.
Only light clamping pressure is required, just enough to keep the dice from
moving during drilling and positioning. A Forstner bit was used for the drilling
operation.

The original design is from Sawtooth Ideas: http://www.sawtoothideas.com/woodworking-plan/home-decor/decorative-dice

VERY nice build.

What I admire the most is the jig you built – simple and dead accurate.

Thanks for sharing this – I am certain whomever you give these to will love them.

This is a favorite for sure.

Cheers!
