Handmade Dominoes Double 9 of White Oak Wood in Oak Box RESERVED FOR DEE

These dominoes and the box were handmade by my 90-year-old dad in his little workshop behind my parents' home.

Dad purchased the white oak wood locally in southeast Iowa. Then he spent hours and hours cutting, sanding, and finishing each little piece. He cut the center groove, drilled holes, and added copper BBs for the dots. (He used to tell me he tossed each domino into the air and shot the BBs into it, but I didn't believe him.) I can't even imagine how much time he spent on this set of 55 pieces! This particular set has weighty chunky pieces. I like the feel of them, and like knowing that they were lovingly created by someone who had to keep busy, even in retirement.

When he was finished, he usually built a box to hold his dominoes. This box he created with oak, and added a sliding acrylic top. Red felt was glued to the bottom.

Dad also made a set of black walnut dominoes--see last image. I made a leather bag to hold them. You can see them here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/69899739/double-9-handmade-dominoes-of-black

Dominoes is a time-honored game and good for all ages. Great item for the cabin or lakehouse.
