I decided to try and make a decently inexpensive Dice Tower over the weekend. I got the idea from Evan Derrick on Board Game Geek. The thread can be found here.
To start out I cut out the basic shape of the base. I originally lined up the Jenga block over it to get the shape I wanted. I decided against using the Scrabble board like in the original post because I thought the 1/4″ Poplar would be a bit more durable. Plus it was $4.00 for a 4 foot long section at Home Depot. this step would be a lot easier if I had a miter or table saw. As it is the hand saw I had worked after sawing for a couple of minutes.
