This week we are making 5 duplicated stuffs. I decided to make five dices.
Firstly I picked appropriate wood (plywood is not a good choice for making small pieces) and measured sizes.
Then I cut the wood into pieces, as I expected how my dices would be like.
Then I polished the wooden pieces, so their surfaces would be smoother.
Once again, I polished them on abrasive paper to fix the tiny defects.
While polishing them on the machine, I accidentally broke my nails – it didn’t hurt so much, but it scared me.
Finally I got the basic shapes of my dices.
Now it’s time to drill holes on them. Firstly I need to make sure where the holes should be.
I tried different machines. Firstly I tried this one, but it was hard for me to control the specific position where to drill, and it was also a trouble since I needed to switch to different surfaces and adjust the machine once I finished.
Finally I decided to drill holes manually. And after drilling all the holes, I polished them again.
So here are my dices!
