DIY Wooden Dice

Such a fun and simple DIY project. Make these DIY Large Wooden Dice. Great for holiday gift giving, for little hands, or game night.

These DIY Wooden Dice are so simple, and so much fun. They would make an amazing gift not just for kids, but for a teacher! Plus you can really make them any size you want.

I know it is kinda early, but my resolution is to be more crafty. I see all of these things that I would love to have, and think that I could make that myself. My problem is, I never do. Or I get intimidated by the tools. No more intimidation.

I am the proud new owner of the Rockwell Tools Blade Runner X2! I feel all tough and like I can do anything. LOL I really can! This thing can cut wood, metal, and tile. It can Rip, scroll, crosscut. Pretty much, if there is a diy around my house, I can accomplish it. AND my favorite part. It’s portable! I don’t have to have a special set up just for it. I can carry this bad boy around.

DIY Wooden Dice

To make the dice, you will need…

  • 1″x 1″x 48″ piece of Wood or whatever size you choose to make your dice. (This was only $0.96 at home depot)
  • stain or paint
  • Saw for cutting (I am using the Rockwell Blade Runner X2)
  • Sandpaper

I set up my Rockwell Blade Runner x2 on the tile floor in the kitchen. I measured the exact width of the wood and set my guide to match. The piece of wood I bought actually measured 1.25 inch wide. Since I want it to be an exact cube I set my cut for 1.25 inches.

Then I let her rip. 😉 Once I had the dice cut and sanded them well. No rough edges.  If you would like inset holes for the dots you can use a drill with a 1/4 drill bit and just drill enough for an indention. I did this and it made it super easy to paint the dots later.

Now I moved my project outside and stained my dice. You could paint them or leave them natural wood color. Totally up to you. I let mine dry for a few hours before bringing them in.

Once the stain is completely dry use a white paint to fill in the dots. If its easy for you, purchase a white paint marker. I was kind of wishing I had done that because I was making so many dice.

Once they are dry you are ready to rock and roll! My kids are already loving the big dice for games! I am thinking a family game night of Yahtzee is in order!

I can’t wait to make more projects with my Rockwell Blade Runner X2. I am easing myself into bigger projects, so keep your eyes out for more to come!
