New Dice Rolling Tray

Mrs. Bard and I were out shopping the other day and I stumbled on a plain bamboo box (for a mere $5) that looked like it would make an excellent dice-rolling tray. Small footprint on my computer desk (which is where I'm playing now), sides just high enough to keep the dice under control, but not get in the way. Just had to line it with some green felt I had lying around to soften the sound of the dice and presto!


A dice rolling tray that's much better than the box lid I've been using for years.

  3. I've been thinking about a dice tower but this is better, the Rejects are famous for throwing dice all over the place!

    1. You know, I've often thought about getting a dice tower. I may still do so one day.

  4. That does seem like it would be better than a boxed lid. Very cool find. Go Mrs. Bard.

    1. Yep, if it weren't for the Mrs. we would have skipped that store, and I would have missed out.

  5. Great looking tray Bard. I really like the lining you added. It may be worth a couple extra critical hits per game.

  6. How did you get your felt so straight and perfect? I'm making dice boxes for Christmas presents (it's taken way longer than I thought it would), and my felt isn't perfect like that.

    1. I actually had to buy a pair of heavy duty cloth scissors -- before I had them I never could cut felt or any other cloth perfectly straight (the edges would fray or bunch up when I was cutting). The heavy cloth scissors really do the trick -- they go through the felt like tissue paper, and it stays straight.

    2. Thanks, I'll have to look for some of those.
