To start off with this Instructables. I don't have access to any 4x4 wood so I had to use some 2x4 pieces, I started with getting the right measurements to make some cubes.

Step 1: The List
The items I used are:
- wood clamps
- wood glue
- miter saw
- sandpaper with a grit of 60, 80, and 120
- drill with a size 16 bit
- wood varnish
Step 2: Making the Cut
So I started with getting the right measurement and marked the lines so I get the cut perfect with the 2x4
Step 3: Gluing
now I used the wood glue and made the blocks aligned as I tightened the clamps and let the glue dry over night
Step 4: Marking and Drilling
I used a speed square to make lines going from corner to corner. then I used a normal dice to make sure the numbers were in the right place. Next I used a drill and bit and the X's to make the holes as close to perfect as possible.
Step 5: Sanding
next I sanded the blocks with a 60 grit sandpaper to get the marks off. then I used the 80 and 120 grit to smooth it out and round the edges
Step 6: The Finale
now for the finish project I used a black paint for the holes and gave the dice a nice layer of varnish
