DnD Dice Trays

Started making little DND dice trays, designing the patterns and doing inlay. A lot of fun, although now I’m a bit obsessed :slight_smile: I I was going to try staining the birch inlay but the flash/smoke stain gives it a beautiful effect, combined with the silvery look of the birch.

Beautifully made. It is nice that you paid so much attention to detail in that the wood grain all goes the same direction.

DnD dice trays will lead to beautifully inlaid serving trays which sparks an idea for inlaid valet trays and so it goes. Really nice work.

This is beautiful! I haven’t the guts to attempt inlay yet, but I love the result! Any tips?

Those look incredible. I have only tried inlays-worked out pretty good just haven’t had the time to get back to it…this may make me find the time:-) Great job!

First and foremost, this site for ‘inlay’ search is amazing and got me started. Incredible resources by great people, with examples and instructions. I made these designs using an app called Amaziograph, free handing them. Then opened them in Inkscape and did a Trace, and added the outer circles and rims. I increased the size of the pieces by 0.015 to get them a little closer to the size of the holes, but if I wanted to get them to truly snap into place I would have had to go bigger. Kerf is a PITA, lol. If you want more info I’m happy to DM. :slight_smile: Be bold and go for it!!

Good to see you here again. :slightly_smiling_face: Our official hall monitor @arh2 and I were hoping you were doing well…haven’t seen you in quite a while. Could have sworn I sent you a PM, but couldn’t find it anywhere. :roll_eyes:

I’m above ground and hanging in there! My neck/back issues have kept me off the GF and computer, but things are calming down so hope to get caught up with everyone before too long. :slight_smile:
