Woodworking Christmas Presents

 This year's homemade Christmas presents included a dice tower for my son, who really likes to play D&D now.  A picture of it in "storage" mode and then....

 It "transforms" into a dice tower.  It's made of white maple and cherry wood and was a lot of fun to make. Sean like a utilitarian design style so that's what I went with.

I'm sponsoring a prize for this year's painting challenge, which will be a custom made dice tower.  Not sure which category Curt will select but looking forward to building it.

For my wife I made the "obligatory" cutting board.  Every new wood worker makes a cutting board for Christmas.  The hardwood I used was pretty poor quality, as you can see in the middle left side.  I'll try resending this one down.  I did get a gallon of food grade mineral oil for finishing the board so expect to see a lot of cutting board for future holiday presents.

Lovely work. There's nothing quite like something you've made yourself as a gift.

Love that dice tower - can I commission one out lol? Could be perfect for Jakob's D&D game too :)
