Introduction: Magic the Gathering Dice and Counter Box

Hello Magic Fans!


This is my instructable for all of you, who love playing Magic the Gathering and want to have a unique piece of equipment on the kitchen table or at tournaments!

Its a Dice and Counterbox. (which obviously could be used for lots of other stuff) - e.g. Wedding Ring Box for Magic fans ?! ;-)


- All you need is 80 cards of Magic the Gathering (or any other Card Game)

- Woodglue

- a scroll saw, a stamp or a cutter to cut out the cards

- a drilling machine to drill the holes

- 8 tiny magnets

Step 1: Glue Together 36 Cards

Just use the woodglue to glue together ca. 36. cards (use more if you want to make the box bigger, i used about 35 to 40)

Do this 2 times, one stack is for the upper part and one stack is for the lower part of the box.

Step 2: Drill Tiny Holes

When both stacks are dry you can drill 4 tiny holes into the corners of each stack, make sure you drill them as close as possible to the corners.

Step 3: Place the Magnets Inside the Holes

use some glue to put them into the holes.

You can purchase these tiny magnets on amazon.com:

https://www.amazon.com/Multi-Use-Refrigerator-Magn...

i dont get money for this, its just an example on which magnts you COULD use!

Step 4: Cut Out the Middle

use a scroll saw to cut out each part of the 2 box stacks.

You can also use a stamp to stamp out the cards before you glue them, or a laser cutter to cut the stacks or cards before glueing or after glueing, i used my scrollsaw, its accurate (the waves i cut result in my poor crafting skills :-P)

Step 5: Glue Together About 5-8 Cards

when they are dry, glue them on the top and on the bottom Part of the box.

Step 6: Let Them Dry

let them dry, if possible use something heavy to bring some pressure onto the complete box to stick together all the glueings :)

Step 7: FINISH!

You are ready to fill your box with whatever you like to!

Examples:

- Candy for your kids

- Dices and Counters

- Wedding ring for a proposal to your magic loving partner ;-) ?


Have fun!

    Neat, I've always wanted to take cards from the discard pile at my local game shop, but never knew what to do with them.

    Take them all, build boxes and Bring the boxes Back to your LGS as presents or prices for draft and Tournament Wins. :-)

    Mostly a Ton of Basic Lands. In Europe you can buy about 4000 thrash cards For 10 €.

    So this Box is maybe 1€ in Material (glue, Magnets and cards)

    What an awesome idea! If I still had my huge stash of MtG cards I would definitely do this. Only got an angel/water deck left though. :P
