Hows about two for £6?
First up I needed a wall that could surround the tray - I searched for wooden circles, discs etc but nothing worked. By chance I came across the term wooden washers and this directed me to a custom car site for music nuts. A moment of inspiration hit me - speaker housings.
A quick search on ebay revealed these two babies for a grand total of £6.97
ebay site for speaker housing
A few days later they turned up.
Today. Now Ive been going a bit stir crazy so I thought what the heck lets build these now. Fifteen minutes later the bases were cut from scrap 10mm mdf (it was cold in the shed) and some off cuts of felt were procured from a failed gaming mat.
|MDF Base cut|
|Measuring inside felt - be sure to cut extra so excess sits inside housing|
|Glue felt (pva) to base|
Screw down the speakers bases and jobs done - total elapsed time 25minutes
|Finished article - less than £3.50|
And before anybody asks - yes they do work - the dice don't jump out, always roll ones etc..
I might one day paint the bases...maybe I should make up some with Shed Wars branding?
and thanks for reading
