Wooden NES Dice Tray

When it was suggested to me that I build a wooden dice-tray based on a NES Console, I was intrigued since, you see, making art boxes is my hobby. That said, it was a challenge to re-create extruded plastic with thin-stock hardwoods. Further, when making a replica there is no such thing as a happy accident. And I knew I was creating something for a discriminating audience.

But I can tell you with no ego, this is my finest wooden NES box.

Both the upper and lower sections can be used as a dice tray, and the controler unit can hold 10 (ten) casino-sized dice.

He may be a pollutant-pumping mechanical tool of the evil Phyrexian invaders, but he's also adorable! And he wants to come home with you, and, uh, maybe blow up small corners of your kitchen. Probably best not to let him play near your cat.

The Perilous Myr plushie is based off of the Magic the Gathering card of the same name, from the Scars of Mirrodin set. He is made entirely of felt and stuffed with polyfil. His lower arms and legs are ball-jointed and thus poseable. The ball joints are made of needle felted wool, to keep him light and cuddly. His fingers contain yarn-wrapped wires, for posability - he can actually hold onto more...
