Handmade Dominoes of Oak Wood Double 9 in Leather Bag

These dominoes were handmade by my 90-year-old dad in his little workshop behind my parents' home. These dominoes were probably made nearly 20 years ago. You can see the aged look on some of the tarnished steel balls. Although never used, this set is nearly vintage.

Dad purchased the 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 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!

I created the leather storage bag with some soft, pebble-grained, dark brown leather, then added a strong braided drawstring cord. The wooden bead will slide into place to hold the bag tightly shut. Please remind me, and I will include the directions typed by my mother on her old manual Underwood typewriter.

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