This project took way too long for me to roll out at this stage in my lasering life, but I really like the final outcome, so I am sharing it with everyone.
We all love @arh2 's
It is one of the coolest things to build, and I have made a Hawaii version, and have had tons of fun with it.
At some point reading through this community I purchased a bag of wooden dice from amazon:
And probably buried in there was a jig for these dice, but I couldn’t find the jig.
So I decided to make a Jig for this, and a custom box for the dice.
I started on the project a few weekends ago, made a bunch of failed prototypes, and I am still using an annoying version of the jig that I can’t fit my fingers inbetween the dice to flip em easily.
I also didn’t have my calipers zeroed and made a dice box with lid that held a dice and a half… (material is 1/8 in ply)
When you assemble this jig, just make sure to not glue the top lid on, otherwise you can’t flip the dice.
I zipped up 2 versions of the file, one with the words as vectors in the dice, and one editable, but you’d need to turn the text into vectors to engrave.
I did this because not everyone has a 7 year old boy who loves water bears and the princess bride.
