Could work for Festool dominos, but intended for game pieces....
Walnut and QSWO scraps, 3/8" thick walls, interior storage for a "Double 12" domino set (91 pieces + instructions). The lid handle and corners are jatoba with maple splines. Finish is a cut of bullseye shellac topped with some rattle can Minwhacks satin poly (love the nozzle on these cans!)
The MIL is always choosing oddball gifts for us, usually garage sale items. One year I opened this, a set of dominoes in a format I never knew existed. The wife and I don't really play but I decided I wanted something better than the metal tin they came in.
I mulled the box over for a few years, never thinking up something appropriate until I saw a version made by ppworkshop on another site.
Perfect! I only made a few slight changes, but kept the wood combo. The box joint style was the "game changer" that I was searching for.
Simple construction with some pain-staking precision with the cuts for it all to go together well. I actually drew up a plan since there were so many dimension details to keep track of.
The top handle has a recess for a domino and the lid provides a "hub" for various game versions (I'm a complete noob on domino games, only ever used them to line up and push over)
The side strips are 1" wide, but for the lid to fit nicely I cut the longer top strips 1/16" narrower (15/16") and the shorted strips 1/16" wider. This allows for the interlocking pieces to just fall together with the 1/32" gap on each side. If I do it again, I'd reduce the gap by half.
The corners are a nice way to pimp the box out some and allow a table saw cut groove for the plywood bottom. No need for stopped cuts since the corner posts cover them up. Splines for strength. The roundover on the edges let me spend some quality time at the router table with a 1/8" roundover bit 8^) Thanks for looking!
