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)
- 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:
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!
- Candy for your kids
- Dices and Counters
- Wedding ring for a proposal to your magic loving partner ;-) ?
