Anyone willing to post some dice tower plans here or email to me?

Here is a link of the ones I made out of foam board and hot glue.

They are light, durable, work really well and only cost $10 for a sheet of the foam board.

I will post plans on how to make.

Here are a few DIY links... If you use wood instead of foamboard, you can get adhesive-backed foam at the craft store to stick on so that the dice don't make so much noise banging down the tower...

And just for something different --

I am 95% complete on my wood dice tower using these instructions:

I am pleased with the results but not totally satisfied. It's a functional dice tower that will probably impress most people. However, being a perfectionist and aficionado of quality woodwork, I was humbled by my lack of relevant skills for this project.

Here are a few lessons I learned in the process:

-First of all, I appreciate this guy sharing his plans and experience on his blog.

-The plans given make very efficient use of the wood and are very easy to follow for a beginner.

-There's been some inflation since 2006, so the cost of materials came out to around $12.00 at the craft store.

-The drawback of this design is that the tower is permanently afixed to the dice tray. I modified the design by not attaching the dice tray to the tower for easier storage. I can also use the tower with a bigger tray when needed.

Carlos had a dice tower that was slightly smaller than the tray so that it could fit inside for compact storage. I don't know if he bought it or made it himself. The next dice tower I built will incorporate this feature.

-Slapping 4 pieces of wood together does not make a good box--the wood from Hobby Lobby was warped just enough that I had to use tack nails to get them to fit together. If or when I make another one, I will attempt a more advanced design.

-Lining the insides with felt took a little patience but the results were well worth the effort.

-When putting the ramps inside the tower, make sure you leave enough space for the front of the tower to be glued on.

Overall I am pleased with my little project and look forward to attempting again.
