So the previous dice tray worked well, but an unfortunate incident involving mould consigned it to the trash bin. Setting out to make a second one I decided I wanted a deeper tray as well as something more square in shape. The depth especially since while the previous one was adequate for small 12mm d6s, bigger dice have a tendency to careen out of the tray, especially in times of excitement (which is often in my games). This time I used a deep photo frame, a 25cm square Ribba . It is about 4cm deep and only 9.90SGD at the local Ikea.

What I especially like is how he integrated his TV /monitor into the gaming surface so that it sits flush. The stained wood surfaces are a nice classy touch although personally I would preferred painting it all black or a dark mahogany. The TV and the inner surface can be c
