MADE TO ORDER
This listing is for a HANDMADE solid wood carved dice tray. Perfect for any tabletop role playing game. Great for newbies or long time players of Dungeons and Dragons, Warhammer 40k, Cthulhu, Pathfinder, Magic the Gathering, or any other rpg.
This listing is for a tray made from PURPLEHEART. Purpleheart is an incredible wood that is truly and naturally purple! Very tough and solid, this wood is a true heavyweight and these trays weigh more than any other wood type we have, followed by paduak. It has a smooth silky shine in the grain and feels very premium when you touch it. There are less variations in the wood pattern than with other woods, though each tray will be unique in appearance. There may be dark areas, tiny fissures, and light areas which all add character and are part of the raw beauty of the wood. lol Purpleheart has areas of high natural shine with some patches of more matte appearance and texture.
Measures about 7 inches long and 5 inches wide. Slightly under 2 inches high. This is a slightly longer and slimmer version of our other trays and has a bit longer dice trough as well. This makes it a great size when trying to manage table space. This tray perfectly fits A full set of 7 polyhedral dice in wait with a perfectly proportioned rolling area. The trough where the dice are lined up is raised above the rolling area for easy and quick grabbing. Sturdy yet light enough for easy travel. This tray is so functional, it can be used to hold jewelry or coins when it’s resting from battle 😉
These trays are not cut out with lasers, nailed, pieced, or glued together like 100% of the other trays I've seen on etsy and anywhere else. Each of my trays is painstakingly carved from one SOLID hunk of beautiful wood to last longer than a lifetime. This is something you can pass down to your children. Sturdy and rugged, yet buttery smooth to the touch with a matte finish. I use time honored woodworking techniques to create my unique items. Many an elf has cried over the beautiful workmanship ;)
I use only natural finishes on my products. No staining or dyes which can detract from the wood’s natural luster. Beeswax, my own blend of oils, and elbow grease are the only finishes we use. Since I use high quality hardwoods nothing else is needed or desired. The beautiful rich grain of the wood is allowed to shine through.

Our wooden items come finished with our special blend of finishing wax and ready for use and require minimum care to last a lifetime and beyond. If you accidentally leave your item in the sun or it gets wet, a little lemon juice mixed with olive oil and rubbed into the wood will shine it right back up again!
Dice made from resin are the most balanced (besides precision made metal). Most of our collection is made from resin, those made from acrylic may have slight imbalances but shouldn't be noticeable during use. Dice sets such as our skull dice are actually pretty darn balanced! The items inside such as skulls and shells are actually filled with resin in order to maintain a specific density and weight distribution. Our manufacturer performs balance checks and we also perform checks randomly to ensure that each type of dice meets our expectations for random rolls...however since each dice piece is unique there will be some variation.
While we make all our wooden products by hand, in order to provide quality dice at an affordable price we get dice from several dice manufacturers. We handpick the dice we feel are the most high quality and interesting, then create a unique and interesting backstory and qualities for each. We have a lot of fun creating something new with each set and put a lot of effort into it! It's very important to us that each item we offer be fully in the spirit of the role playing games they are for. We also design many of the sets we sell which make them exclusive to our shop.
We work with small teams of people to make our own designs. Our main producer has less than 50 employees. Our dice are produced in batches, not mass produced. The majority of the work is done by hand but machines may be used to make parts of the production go faster. An example of this would be a barrel polisher-which is just a big drum that moves unfinished dice pieces around inside in a way that sands them down to a smooth finish.
We also hand make dice in house, in very small quantities. Most of what we make by hand are custom commissions where people come up with their own design and we try to make that a reality. Our business is made up of me, my husband, & my sister. We do all the packing, shipping, woodworking, and computer work
Many dice shops purchase dice & other gaming supplies from the same dice making companies. While we work towards filing our shop with our own exclusive designs, and hand made dice in house, we must currently buy small batches of dice in order to offer a selection we feel is appropriate. We are the one's who come up with the name, pictures, backstory, packaging, and theme for each dice set despite not physically making it. In this way we can fit the dice sets to our unique brand and vision.
Our kickstarter dice and exclusive designs are designed by us and made by a small dice production company. Handmade dice are designated as such and made by us in our shop.
We are based in the USA
We are a micro company. We have 3 people doing all the work from packaging to woodworking.
We have had a vision since day one to fill our shop with our own exclusive designs.
We try to craft a story for each dice set and are selective about the designs we put in our shop. We have amazing photography
We make all our gorgeous wood trays by hand in our workshop from premium quality wood
We plan to make handmade dice and take commissions after COVID dies down
We try to be as eco-friendly in our process as possible and use paper packaging which is easily recyclable or compostable
We love to make customized orders, take requests, and work with our customers 1 on 1
