By now I've talked to most if not all of the DMs that ran multiple sessions during Living D&D and I got a chance to participate in a session of. I'm putting together a little gift for each of these wonderful DMs and I'd like to keep track of everything in this thread. I'll be updating with pictures as I finish my little project. With that said I suppose I should let you in on the project. I'm making or DMs a home made Dice Tray! Each one will be different and totally unique as well as come with a set of 7 Dice that they all have already chosen through PMs in Discord. I'm having a ton of fun working in my wood workshop and really wanted a way to thank these individuals for introducing everyone to an amazingly fun game so I figured I'd put my amateurish skills to work making some gifts in the spirit of D&D. Like I said, I'll be updating this with pictures as I finish things and once all of them are finished I'll go through the process of letting the DMs choose which one they would like. Thank you again everyone for making Living D&D an amazing experience and that is not limited to only the DMs. I'm talking about all the people that participated in these sessions and maybe found a new passion! For clarification there are 7 DMs that had run repeated sessions to whom I'm making Dice Trays for (provided they are interested). @MadCast: Munsa(the ring leader) - Purple Dice https://imgur.com/2wt2Yvp @MadCast: VoShay - Light Green Dice https://imgur.com/xR3s1fC @MadCast: JigglesTheFett - Red Dice https://imgur.com/IneW606 @MadCast: Khaos - Sparkly Blue Dice https://imgur.com/1zCYSen @MadCast: Kal - Smokey Blue Dice https://imgur.com/xnaxVq2 @MadCast: The Prince - Forest Green Dice https://imgur.com/xYu2eqx @MadCast: Starlight - Opted out
So because you guys got me hooked on D&D I started getting a few dice sets. I then decided to start watching "Critical Roll" on YouTube. I seen some of the stuff they give away as gifts, one of which being dice trays. I got the idea in my head to make my own so here it is! I still have plans to put velvet cloth lining in the tray but otherwise its finished up and I think it looks really good.
So my latest venture into woodworking had me building a spice rack for my kitchen as I'm trying to learn to cook. I was going to just buy one off Amazon until I seen how much they are for just the cheap looking wood ones. I thought to myself, "Hey, I have tools and like to build stuff!". Thus began my attempt to make my own. The following is what it looked like at different steps from start to finish. I ended up basing it off the one I was going to buy from Amazon. I still spent less money building it than it would have been to buy the thing. Holy crap they are expensive. The rack I build can hold 21 glass jars of spices measuring 1.75" x 1.75" x 4". This thing was SO much fun to build and it really didn't take much time either. I spent about 4-6 hours a day for 6 days but most of that was time spent waiting for things to dry.
