Dice Tray 2.01 - Walnut With Black Lining

Honestly, this is just a post of pictures of another dice tray that I made. This is Walnut with black felt. Pics after the jump, but if you want commentary about the actual piece, I'd suggest you look here or here or I guess here.

Elongated Octagonal Dice Tray - v. 1.0

I toyed with calling this an "irregular" octagon. Okay, because I have a lot of respect for my readers, I will concede: Technically this is a "regular" octagon because all of the interior angles are 135 degrees. However, colloquially, it appears "irregular" insofar as it is a polygon that does not approximate a circle, but rather approximates an oval or ellipse. I settled on "elongated" as it adequately describes it. Everyone on board with my pedantry?

Dice Tray 2.0 - Cherry and Royal Blue

I received a custom order on Etsy for another dice tray. The customer requested cherry wood and a blue lining. The design is identical to the Black Poisonwood Dice Tray that I've already posted about. This customer has a good eye for color; the rich cherry wood goes beautifully with the royal blue felt.

General Finishes: Rosewood Stain

So, I generally have been on record as being not exactly pro-stain; however, I have used it in the past with postiive results. Also, I got a custom order recently that requested this stain be used, so I figured it was a good excuse to snap a few pictures to demonstrate what exactly this kind of stain does.
