This is my finished project. My hand saw was not deep enough to go all the way through the wood so I ended up using a chopsaw. I also used a hand sander instead of an orbital. Note: the squares are 4"x4"

Here is my Halloween version. The jar is an old 'flagon' with a crack in it so decided not to add water - but it still works pretty well I think... - Jacobim
Awesome idea, and great Instrubctable! I saw this project on Kimmel this week, with the EXACT SAME PHOTO, and thought I might see the first shout-out for Instructables on national television, but they gave no credit! That's not nice;-( - Winged Fist

Looking good! The 4-way rasp is a tool I sometimes forget about, then remember and use it all the time :)
Since this is the capstone class, you couldn't have completed it without creating the project.
Thanks for the heads up :)Lame they didn't give attribution, they even used the printout in this project! I take pride in knowing that the picture printout is my old boss, and now his face has been shown on TV. :)
Wow! The combination of handmade and CNC is fantastic. Thanks for sharing your creation here.
Those drilled pips look great! Thanks for sharing...now onto the next lesson!
Looking great! Clever idea using a kitty litter container. You'll have to update us when it's all finished. Thanks for sharing!
Sieht großartig aus! Vielen Dank für Ihre Ergebnisse.

I took some scrap wood and glued them together, then I placed it in a CNC mill and routed a plane surface, and after that roted out the hose number. Still need to finish the surface with something though.

I made a square, 4cm x 4cm.
Here's the end result of the below idea. It's still in process and will definitely need to cure a whole lot more. It passed a ten second hang test (long enough to take a picture). I used a super high strength concrete and the hooks are washered to a half-inch corrugated reinforcement bar. It's gonna be real nice after it is cured and polish. The mold was an empty kitty litter container. This took several days to make. Just to make the interior voids was mind numbing; but I got it all together. And yes, it is heavy.
The project seems to be simple. But it gives a lot of work.I think this way about lots of projects, so you're in good company :)Most woodworking projects are about breaking down the build into smaller, more manageable, pieces. Your build came out great. On to the next lesson to tackle some new challenges!
Grande solução para corrigir o seu erro. Isto é o que madeira é tudo. Obrigado por compartilhar!
Looking very good. I hope the tips about drilling will be useful for the next projects you tackle!
Those look really good! Cleaning up the small tabs is trivial and really not a big deal. Staining will be a fun experiment, I'd love to see your choices when you're finished.
Fun project, I use the same type of drilled block to hold all my driver bits!
The solid wood pips are a fantastic choice. Wow! I know your friend will love this gift. I hope they invite you back to play!
That looks great! I made this class with the beginner in mind and you don't need a lot of tools to make the projects. Looking forward to seeing your creations in the next lessons!

It took me the first day of just playing with the circular to get the cuts right, i had to put it away for the night because i lost daylight and i needed time to be happy i started and that this first thing wasn't going to defeat my resolve. Day two i set up a lil better shop, i dont have anywhere set up in the garage, it took a few concrete blocks and two drop lights to feel ready. My cuts started to feel better, to get a lil more confindence i cut a few blocks by doing one cut then, instead of just doing two cuts i did three cuts, rolling the wood so i could see how straight each was. It worked well for me. By the end of the post i had cut 19 blocks with a little left over and my cuts were pretty good. Nothing i couldn't hit with a sander to erase mistakes. I havemt painted the dice yet, but will move on because my wife wants to get creative with the stains and colors. So here is where i am before moving on to lesson two. First block, and end result. Im happy with my first project. - philipcop66
So this project took me a lot longer than it would have if I had just painted the pips. But I'm all about not painting over unfinished wood if I can help it! So I actually drilled the holes out on each side of the dice with my drill and a 5/8" forstner bit. Next I used my drill press and 5/8" plug cutter to cut out the pips out of walnut. Glued each pip in the holes I had drilled on the dice. Sanded them down flush on all sides so the dice were all nice and smooth. Lastly put a couple coats of clear satin polycrylic protective Finnish.I am giving them to my brother for xmas! Great gift idea! Had a lot of fun taking my time with making these! Oh and the actual dice were cut from left over scraps from a job I did installing hand rails. Hemlock baluster posts that were too long and I had to cut to fit so I kept the scraps and super glad I did because the edges were already rounded and the wood is just little nicer quality then your average 4x4 post.?? I love woodworking and would LOVE to see another class available that is just a little advanced but honestly I am really enjoying this class!!!???????? - CaRpEnTeR GiRl

So I'm in an apartment so I didn't have use for the house numbers. But I had been working on a similar project using scrap wood from my local cabinet shop. And used all the same techniques but also used a planer a table saw (to clean up the strips before I glued them together) and finally my miter saw to cut out 45* strips and then I glued the angled stops together to get the zig zag.
fun stuff - has anyone tried this with a panoramic shot to try and minimize the photoshopping steps?
