The Dice Tower & Storage Combo

Are you looking for a simple, elegant solution for your dice rolling needs?  I was too, so I decided to design and build one.  What I've come up with is a simple, easy to carry dice tower that doubles as a dice storage box when not in use. 

Features

  •  It holds a large amount of dice, as evidenced by the following picture.
  • sturdy construction using cabinet grade Baltic Birch
  • 3 directional baffles to ensure randomness on every roll
  • an oversized tray to hold handfuls of dice
  • measurements are 6.25 x 5.25 x 2.25 inches which makes it easy to just toss in your bag and go
  • snug fit prevents the tower from "accidentally" opening during transit
This is the actual amount of dice this tower will hold

I want to make this item available to as many people as possible, so I'm doing something I've never done before.  I'm offering an option for you to get it as an unfinished kit to remove the labor cost of assembly and finishing.  

This photo is exactly how your kit will arrive.  You will need to assemble, clean and finish it.  I will provide you a link to the Youtube instructional video in a PM once you pledge.

Of course, I will still offer the grab-&-go version that is ready to go straight from the box. 

Hardwood Veneer

I only use high quality 10mil paper-backed REAL wood veneer.  It engraves well and adds beauty to your piece without adding the cost of traditional hardwood.  Veneer is available both in the un-assembled kit and the finished pieces as seen below. 

If you add veneer to your kit, it will come pre-cut and you'll just need to adhere it to the tower.

When choosing your veneer, keep in mind whether or not you will want an image engraved.  Different species are better/worse for engraving.  For instance here you see that the images show up WAY better on Cherry than on the Zebrawood.

Custom Engravings

The tray can be engraved with any simple line image you supply me with.  But PLEASE make sure you have permission to use the image if it isn't in the public domain.  Alternatively, any of the images below is available.  If you decide to get an engraving, please choose one of these 3 panels.  Tower Front, Tower Back, Tray Bottom 

Please use this list and add up whichever items you would like to receive.  Shipping is FLAT RATE of $10 for US and $25 WORLDWIDE, no matter how many kits or towers you pledge for.  This is different than the initial video says because I found out the shipping weight was more than expected

Risks and challenges

To date we have run several successful campaigns and have never failed to deliver in a timely manner. The only real risk is that something happens to me and I'm unable to fulfill. But I have had a plan in place since my very first campaign to handle that situation. If I die, my daughter will refund via Kickstarter, every backer that has yet to be fulfilled. It's not a likely scenario, but I like to be prepared. (Not any different than having a will in place.)

I have multiple suppliers lined up just in case this campaign explodes and will begin building rewards during the campaign live on my stream to ensure fulfillment ASAP.
