Handmade Dominos of Exotic Red Heart Wood -- Double 9 in Wooden Box

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

Dad purchased the red heart 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 steel 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. (You will notice that the 'dots' are not always perfectly placed. Dad did his best, but being extremely meticulous was not in his nature. I personally think this just adds to the handmade charm, but I wanted you to know.)

I adapted this wooden box, which I purchased. I sanded and repainted the front, then added "DOMINOES" There is extra room inside for your playing cards, dice, scoring tablet and pencil, or another small game.

My mother typed up instructions on her old black manual Underwood typewriter. I will include a copy with your set.

Dad also made many other sets in oak, walnut, and acrylic.
