The Elvenroot Dice Case is itself a perfectly handcrafted 20 sided die. Made of solid White Oak, this dice box measures 3.75 inches (9.5 cm) in diameter with a volume large enough to hold several sets of dice.  The rare earth magnets hold the lid securely in place while allowing easy access to the dice inside.

The Walnut Burl Premium Case is made from solid Cherry and covered with a Walnut Burl veneer for contrast.  The African Sapele Premium Case is made from solid hard maple covered with African Sapele veneer for contrast.  Both can be made with plain numbered faces as shown on the Walnut case above, or with embellished faces as shown on the Sapele case above.

If you've got an extra large dice collection then you need an extra large dice case!  The Elvenroot XL Dice Case measures 5.6 inches (14.2 cm) in diameter and has a volume roughly 3 times that of the standard dice case.  Shown above with the standard case inside for perspective, the large case can hold a bulk pack of 100 dice.  The XL Dice Case is available in the same wood combinations as the standard case with plain numbered or embellished faces.

The Elvenroot Dice Tower is a truly portable handcrafted hardwood Dice Tower.  Made from solid domestic and exotic hardwoods the tower looks amazing on the gaming table, but it really separates itself from other dice towers in its portability and ease of use.  Collapsed, the Dice tower is a small 6 inch x 6 inch square that is 2 inches tall (15.25 cm x 15.25 cm x 5 cm), making it convenient to carry.  Unlike other portable towers however the Elvenroot tower not only disassembles in seconds, it also goes together in seconds.  If you enjoy assembling 3D puzzles thats great, I just don't think you should have to at the gaming table.

All of the Elvenroot towers have quality leather straps and leather lined trays.  The following wood combinations are currently available:

Multiple crossbars set in concentric rectangular rings and a lower baffle ensure that your dice will make contact with multiple points in the tower with each throw.

 Two Steel rods work to align the tower to the tray, and give the tower added stability.

 

Every Dice Tower and Case is hand crafted in my shop in Southwest Michigan.  Additional wood species may be added based on feedback and demand.

Inside the workshop
Inside the workshop

I started 'Woodcraft By Benjamin' a couple of years ago to share my passion for woodworking by selling small handcrafted items online.  It started with a simple Etsy shop and grew to include my own website.  The incredible response to my dice cases and dice trays inspired me to launch the Elvenroot brand specializing in handcrafted gaming accessories.  A successful Kickstarter campaign will enable me to expand my shop and make some needed upgrades to increase efficiency and production, as well as grow the Elvenroot product line in the future.

Update - 

I've added Purple Heart to the available wood options!  The Dice Tower is available in Purple Heart with Cherry tray and crossbars, while the premium Dice Cases are available in a Purple Heart and Maple combination.

 Backers of the 'Game Master Set' can also opt to have an engraved nameplate added to the Dice Tower.  The nameplate is has a brushed silver finish and is engraved with an Old English Font to match the Dice Cases.

Risks and challenges

The risk associated with my Kickstarter campaign is extremely low as I already have an operational woodworking business with wonderful product reviews and customer feedback. The only potential risk would be meeting my projected fulfillment timeline if the campaign were to grow beyond my expectations. However I have already begun putting plans in place for additional shop space and manpower, should the need arise.
