  • 20 Sided Die Box

    This is my first box. I wanted a fun and geeky box to hold my dice. I knew people had done 6-sided dice so I wanted something different. I cut the pieces to the box on my scroll saw (though any bevel-capable saw would do), then glued together the halves. The two sides are held together by pairs of strong magnets. The numbers are engraved and painted. The box itself is oak.

                  I tried to set the bevel between 20 and 21 degrees. I think the correct angle for a perfectly flush cut would be 20.9-ish, but that's hard to get on my saw, so I did have a little bit of an internal gap for glue to fill.

                  I applied the numbers by applying a pattern to each triangle with the correct number on it. After cutting, I just used a dremel to cut through the pattern where the ink was for the numbers. I have a terribly unsteady hand so I couldn't have free-handed it and have it turn out half so nice.

                  Thanks you all for your responses. I sure had fun making it

                      Nice idea and well done too. If you used rare earth magnets, they could be hidden and just a couple would be enough.

                        I did use rare earth magnets and inset them so they're hidden when closed. I still wanted 6 pairs though... makes a really firm connection.

                                I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                                Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                                We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
