so I’ve had some spare time recently and started crafting and came up with a CHEAP way to make a dice tray and I thought I’d share. I picked up a Small Pallet Decor Piece from hobby lobby and wood burned it. Then I took a stencil I got online and painted red followed by a high gloss varnish. Next I took some red faux leather to make the insert and DONE! A dice tray for under $10.
The key is the depth of the block-type picture frame used for a dice tray. You will want a frame which is at least one inch deep. You could possibly stack two, or more, frames on top of each other, using Wood Glue (requires bare wood -- no stain, or anything else on the wood surface, for a strong bond), or you could use E6000 Glue if the wood has some sort of finish on it. Set books on top of the stacked frames, making sure the edges are all lined up properly.
I converted to using a Dice Tower, a few years ago. The tray it empties into, is superb at keeping my dice under control. I no longer chase dice across the floor, nor do I see them crashing into figures on the table, knocking them around, disrupting the carefully set up units, in the midst of combat! A dice tray will accomplish the same thing. Once you get accustomed to rolling dice in a container of some sort, you won't want to go back to rolling them across the tabletop. Cheers!

margaret: Putting this here because I don't know where else to post it - the site is not letting me post responses today. And it wouldn't let me log out and relog either. Not sure what is going on

Draklith: have your internet settings changed? first thing i"d check, sometimes when you install a new program or something, it will change your settings

margaret: It eventually resolved itself. The computer did update at some point this past week, but I never changed anything in the browser settings to resolve the issue. This site just seems to get cranky with my computer sometimes

thelibraryghost: Is thread necro-ing frowned upon here? (It would be in the Crafting Tips and Tricks forum, not just adding comments in General Crafting.)
