This is an old design I did for the laser at the maker space. I think I may have shown an example of it here before at some point in the past
But since I now have a GF, I can cut it on that and experiment with new materials!
I made three boxes last night:
They have 2 sides. These are for Dungeons and Dragons. The intention is that one side stores the dice we need, and the other holds the miniature for your character.
I have not yet bought the hardware screws and magnets I need to finish the assembly. I’ll probably do that this weekend.
The 3 materials I chose were, from the right:
-MDF from Home Depot
-Baltic Birch Plywood from my local wood source
-Proofgrade Maple Plywood
They all work, but the maple is really the nicest, by far. The finish on it is FANTASTIC! The Baltic Birch is nice, but would really benefit from being sanded and finished with some varnish of some kind.
The only problem I had with the is that it’s slightly thicker than my MDF, and I did not adjust the design for that extra little width. So everything is really tight. That box is harder to open and close than the MDF one.
I’ll adjust the design tonight and cut another one this weekend that will be a little looser.
I have a couple of hard woods I want to try this with as well. Although I’m not sure if they’ll handle the living hinge or not.
