I thought I would post these two Mesquite Domino sets I just completed today for a friend at work. Everything on the sets are made from Mesquite including the Dominoes that have 3/32” copper rivets for spinners. The grooves on the Dominoes are done with a 3/32” straight router bit and the dots or pips are done with a 4 flute 1/4” round nose center cut end mill from Enco on my drill press. I finished the Dominoes with Clear Poly and everything else was finished on a Beall Wood Buff System. The boxes are constructed with Half Blind Dovetails and have Leather in the bottoms that goes into the grooves in the box sides so that it will always be flat this also makes installation easy. I just allow for the thickness of the leather when I cut my floor grooves, this is the way I always build my box floors. They also have Rare Earth Magnets in the box and the lid that pull the lid shut and keep it closed. The over all dimensions of the boxes are 4”H X 8 1/4”L X 3 1/4”W. I haven’t posted in awhile as I have been busy with other projects. I hope you like these latest two sets as much as I enjoyed making them.
