It’s my first weekend free since…Easter…dang. Anyways, I recently got some metal D20s at PAX east. I was worried about these heavy dice damaging my other dice in my bag. The obvious solution is to make them there own box.

On a related note, I recently picked up some Sapele Plywood at Boulter Plywood (, they are located in Medford, Ma, but they also deliver. They have some nice stuff!). I also finally picked up some EVA foam floor mats.

An afternoon with Inkscape and testing material settings later, and I have this beauty!

I stacked the cut up pieces and glued them together. I placed some magnets to hole the box shut. I sanded the edge of the box, because I wanted the Sapele to show through. Then, I hot glued the foam into the box.

I used some Tung Oil to finish it off. The pictures don’t do it justice, it is a really awesome red color. I’m really happy with the way it turned out! Now, lets hope this will make them roll better tomorrow night!
