Whilst waiting for my Fallout Wasteland Warfare pre-orders to arrive, I’ve had far too much time to think.  However, one idea that popped into my head I just had to try.  Surely mouse mat twixt box photo frame could make an awesome dice tray?

Mouse mat from Amazon (£9), box frame currently half price in Hobbycraft (£3)Mouse mat from Amazon (£9), box frame currently half price in Hobbycraft (£3)

Use the glass as a template to cut the mouse mat.  Then find another use for the glass, it is no longer needed!Use the glass as a template to cut the mouse mat. Then find another use for the glass, it is no longer needed!

Very similar idea to mine, which you can see here: https://www.beastsofwar.com/project/mandas-amachan-cheap-cheerful-dice-tray-project/

I love the idea of using a mouse pad though with the texture on it. 👍

Nice piece, if you fancy turning your hand to a more material affair, this project from @ajhawes might be of interest https://www.beastsofwar.com/project/foldable-transportable-dice-tray/
