"Bad Ass boxes made with high quality everything!!!" -Geeked Up Gaming Review Group

The Dice Chest is a hybrid dice case and rolling tray for tabletop gamers. The lid doubles as a rolling screen for GMs and players who prefer to hide their rolls. Each case is made from wood that is hand selected for it's beauty and strength. Cases are built in our on-site woodshop to our exacting standards.

With a footprint of 9.5" by 5.75" (241mm x 146mm) the Dice Chest holds 96 standard d6 dice, has ample room for pencils, cards, and gaming supplies.

"With this dice chest you can keep things organized all while having an accessory that looks totally badass." - Raine, Initiative Tabletop

Features

QUALITY. The Dice Chest is made from 3/8" wood and is built to last. Our high standards guarantee that every Dice Chest will be an epic addition to your collection.

"What's got 6-sides, a removable top, and is freaking awesome? The Dice Chest!" -NVS Gameplay

ERGONOMIC ROLLING TRAY. The rolling tray is designed to be both ergonomic and low profile. We put the Dice Chest through multiple design revisions in order to find the perfect balance between size and usage. The depth of the tray will keep your dice collected when rolling as well as allow you to see and pick them up easily. Tray bottoms are felt lined to reduce noise and impact

FRICTION FIT SLIDING LID. The Dice Chest features a friction fit lid that will hold your dice and supplies in place. We hand select the finest pieces of lumber for this high profile piece.

ELEGANT ROLLING SCREEN. The lid doubles as a rolling screen which is held in place by a small vertical slot. This approach consumes very little area in the tray itself and is fast and easy to set up. The slot allows you to face your symbol toward you or your adversaries.

IDEAL FOOTPRINT. Measuring 9.5" by 5.75" (241mm x 146mm) the Dice Chest boasts ample room for your dice and RPG supplies. The interior is 9.0" x 5.0" x 0.87" (229mm x 127mm x 22mm) with the lid closed. Holds 96 standard D6 dice.

FINISH. Each piece is finished with high quality stains and brushed with Tung Oil for a beautiful luster. Available finishes include: Natural, Red Oak, Dark Walnut, Early American, Ebony, and Kickstarter Green. All premium woods come in natural finish with Tung Oil.

HOLIDAY DELIVERY. First 100 Dice Chest orders guaranteed to be delivered before the holidays. Domestic orders only. No additional charge.

Wood Information

We love working with a variety of wood and enjoy the unique characteristics of each species. Below is some information on each of the species we offer. We are happy to build your Dice Chest in any species of wood that is available to us. Let us know if you have a special request.

White Ash is a dense hardwood that is native to North America. It is a strong, straight grained wood that is very popular domestically. White Ash has lovely grain patterns that hold a finish nicely and is easy to work with due to it's stability. Our White Ash is harvested by hand from Mike's property in Michigan; we cut the wood ourselves and mill and dry it on site.

Maple is native to Asia with a number of species appearing in Europe, Northern Africa, and North America. Our Maple varies from from blond to cream colored wood with golden to brown grain patterning. It takes a very high luster finish and has a consistent appearance. The maple is the national tree of Canada and is a popular choice for the art of bonsai.

Black Walnut is a highly sought after wood native to the Midwest and east-central areas of the United States. It is highly prized for its dark colored heartwood which is very strong, yet easily split and worked. The wood has historically been used for furniture, flooring, paddles, gun stocks, coffins, and a variety of other wood products.

Marblewood generally refers to a variety of trees with characteristics resembling marble in grain pattern or textures. Primarily imported from South America this wood is very durable, dense, and heavy. The heartwood is a yellow to golden brown, with irregular brown, or black streaks. The grain pattern is straight and tends to be interlocked. Marblewood is extremely striking visually but difficult to work due to the high density of the wood.

Jatoba is exceptionally durable, strong, and hard. It is native to Central America, Southern Mexico, Northern South America, and the West Indies. Also known as Brazilian Cherry it is commonly used as flooring, furniture, cabinetry, tool handles, shipbuilding and small specialty items. The heartwood varies from a light orangish brown to a darker reddish brown and has a good natural luster.

Red Cedar is native to North America and commonly known as Red Juniper, Pencil Cedar, and Aromatic Cedar. With striking red heartwood patterns Red Cedar is fragrant, very light, and resistant to rot. It is a durable wood but has a tenancy to take cosmetic damage easily. The pleasant fragrance and natural pest repellant characteristics of Red Cedar put it in high demand as lining for clothes chests and closets.

Bubinga is a fine grained, hard and heavy wood that takes a high lustrous finish. It is native to tropical regions of Africa and South America. Bubinga is light red or violet with evenly spaced purple stripes that are occasionally figured with a wavy, rosy grain. It is often used for harps, bass guitars, high end drum kits. The wood works without difficulty and is very durable.

Risks and challenges

Producing custom wood items requires a high attention to detail, loads of wood, and some very specific tools. We make our Dice Chests in our fully equipped wood-shop here in Michigan. We obtain the premium lumber and hardware from reputable US sources that are able to fulfill our orders quickly. We have many samples of every available part on site and have already built many Dice Chests to refine our process. We have a line of wooden gaming accessories featured at www.gametimber.com
