A co-worker and his family are extreemly competative (read Rabid) backgammon players.
He wanted something different to use for his doubling cube.
He came up with the design. I made them out of Bubinga. They are 3½ inches across the flats and 2 inches thick, finished with Shellac
I had the numbers and letters laser engraved, (wish I had Darren Wright's CNC Router, that laser stuff isn't cheap!)
The 8 sided one is a Christmas gift for his parents, and the 6 sided is for himself.
Hope everyone here at FWW has a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!
