Building a Dice Box

I had absently considered getting one of these. Basically it’s a box that you keep your dice in. They also provide you a space to roll your dice in, so they don’t go all over the table (and onto the floor etc).

But wasn’t really giving it serious thought as most of my gaming is online, which includes the dice. Except as DM, I tend to roll that physically.

So with that idea floating about in the back of my head, I was in Bunnings the other day and passed through the kids craft area when I spotted this.

And then I had some inspiration.

So I took it home and broke out the kids acrylic paints.

And I was mostly happy with the result.

The whole thing is black, and I’ll paint the book’s pages some kind of off white.

I added a felt liner to soften the dice rolling. It still needs some tidying along the edges in this photo.

Next, I decided that the magnetic catch wasn’t going to be secure enough and added an extra catch on the outside.

So almost complete.

Still to do – to paint the pages, tidy the felt and decorate the spine and back. I plan to have DICE in dwarven runes along the spine, and a wireframe d20 on the rear.
