Has anyone made any dice trays that fit into the game box? I have seen many that just use foam and cut to size. I would like something easier to get out like maybe am angled tray of some sort. I also play marvel dice masters which has tons of dice.

How about a dice tower? There are portable versions, for example this one by Chessex which is not hard to replicate with some multiply and a fretsaw or even foam board and an Exacto knife.

If I was going to do it I'd use MDF and glue. If you cut notches into the wood where the edges meet it will be plenty strong enough, without having to use wood thick enough to take a nail.

There's various ways I can think of to make it easier to get out of the box. Number 1 being don't make it such a snug fit in the first place , you could also drill small "lifting" holes into the side walls, that shouldn't affect it ability to contain dice

The box lid itself will do in a pinch of course

Nice tower.
Could this be the start of a hole series of homemade dicetowers?
Show us your masterpieces fellow boardgamers.

I've sold quite a few of these over the years:





And toyed with these for a while, but getting the right length on the plastic before bending was too much of a PitA:
