Picture of Dice Tray & Tower Combo
Became tired of trying to find a dice tower I liked for a good price so I just made my own. For less than 20$ I came up with a dice tray and a removable tower that can be added when needed. Everything needed can be purchased at your local hobby/craft store.
You will need:
Walnut hollow wood panel-8.99$
Woodsies 6pc wood slats-2.99$
Self adhesive felt-1.09$
Paint or Stain, sandpaper, wood filler, hand saw or jig saw with a fine wood blade, and good wood glue.

Gather your materials, fill in gaps, then make your cuts. After you have everything you need, start with the tray. You will notice staple holes from the packaging, fill those in and any other gaps you can find in the tray or in the wood slats. Once dry sand everything down lightly for a better fit and smoother look.
Time for the cuts. Take the three best looking slats and set them aside for the back and two sides of the tower. Measure and cut 1 1/2" off the ends of the other three slats (one at a time or stack them and cut once). Those will be the inner slats. Take the best looking of the three slats and set it aside for the front. Cut another 1 1/2" of of the other end of the two slats left (those will be the top and bottom). Cut off the corners from the remaining wood on three sides (for a total of 6 triangles for use as in re slat braces) and cut a 1" x 5/8" rectangle from the remaining end for 2 legs of the tower.

Step 2: Cut Felt

It may be hard to see from the photo but you will need to cut a 7" x 7" square for the bottom of the tray, 4 7" x 1/2" strips for the inner sides of the tray, and 3 1 1/2" x 2 13/16" for the inner slats of the tower. Draw out your cuts on the back to make it easier to cut, it will all fit on one set with no problem.

I like the decorative details you put on it. A little extra flair never hurt anyone...
