Black Poisonwood Dice Tray with Green Felt

Note the continuing grain pattern
This is another dice tray, this time the standard 3" side, 6 1/4" diameter, octagonal dice tray. They're available on Etsy.

This is made from black poisonwood, which is also known as chechen or Caribbean rosewood, that is finished with Formby Tung Oil and given a dark green felt lining. A gentleman in Germany messaged me to request this, and I was happy to oblige. Working with the exotic woods is a lot of fun. I'm pleased with how this turned out as I was able to make the dice tray from one piece of material, so you can see the grain pattern continuing the entire way around the tray. The picture above shows how the grain follows around the sides of the tray.
