So my dad is retired and is a hobby modeler... who better then to make a dice tower or 3 for me (glass table + dice = no good). Anyway, I came up with a simple idea and he ran with it. Some say he has some issues with details and being a weee bit of a perfectionist. I will let you judge

This dice tower is constructed of ¼-inch MDF board with box joints for rigidity and strength. Tray is 8”x4¼” by 1½” high. Tower is 3¾” square and 7¾” tall when placed in tray. Decoration is printed paper bonded to the board. Board is lacquer sealed prior to bonding the decoration and the decoration is finished with polyurethane varnish, providing protection from the occasional spilled beverage. Tower will accommodate dice sizes up to jumbo.



Then the finished product



So what happens in the daylight? The Dark Keep turns into the Sandstone Keep!



How about something not castley... a Timber Tower.



I also lowered the walls on the dice tray a bit.

I had one up for trade in the Flea Market and it went fast. I was surprised by the response really. I may do a few just to put in future math trades or such as I am more interested in building my game collection in a way the wife wont see (ie credit card)

Well I own about a half dozen of the games you want in a trade, so gmail me if you have one available and we can talk.

I just got one of these towers in a trade with Drdash. It looks better in person than in the picture (hard to believe I know). I LOVE it. If anyone sees one of these come up in a trade, jump on it. I own 3 dice towers (I know modest) and this is far and away the best built and nicest looking one I own.

Very cool! I have not really seen the need for a dice tower. Until now!
