Ooooh! Nice wood. :smile:

Did you stain it or is that purpleheart or some other really cool thing I can’t afford?

Very nice! The cork is a good idea, how do the dice behave? does the cork add or preserve the energy?

It’s a good neutral rolling surface. Dampens the bounce just a bit, helps keep your dice in the box.

Purple heart. Not the most expensive exotic, but also not free. While I got this from Woodcraft, I actually just ordered some from a supplier that I posted elsewhere.

Fun trick, search ebay for “1/8 lumber”. That’s how I found these guys. Good prices, and they shipped next day. I’ll update when I get the goods and give a real review.

Superb color in that.
I built my jeweler’s bench toolbox out of it. Surprised me when I cut it, it looked like black walnut. I stacked the pieces I had cut overnight, and surfaces that had been exposed were red in the morning. Oxidation I presume.

Don’t know how much is oxidation, though that fast most likely. Resources I’ve read indicate that it has an ongoing transition in color from UV exposure.

actually pretty cheap. My wife and I built mini pallets out of it for our wedding center pieces for less than $200 and I still have a pretty large chunk of it sitting around
