Description

Order Bristlecone Pine

Bristle Cone PineDuring our first Kickstarter one of our backers put down a challenge in the comments, to see if I could come up with wood from the Methuselah Tree, the worlds oldest living Bristlecone Pine, and the worlds oldest living organism. While there’s no way in hell I would cut down a tree that’s well over 4,000 years old. Bristle Cone Pines, while not common, do grow in isolated groves just below the tree line all over the southwest.

So of course I made a few phone calls and found a very nice guy by the name of David Spiesman who builds beautiful furniture from the dead fall wood of Bristle Cone Pines. He agreed to sell me some of his stock. Some time during the whole Kickstarter fulfillment process the small branches I bought from him disappeared. So that lead to another frantic search that yielded a supplier out of Colorado with the only known legal permit to harvest Bristlecone Pine. They have the permit to harvest from a mountain top that was burned in a forest fire in the late 1800’s. So, no living trees are harmed and we can now get a consistent supply of Bristlecone Pine that is large enough to make polyhedrals from. bristleconepinepolyhedrals

Now for the really cool part. These dice sound like glass when you roll them! You see Bristlecone pines grow so slowly that their growth rings are very tightly packed, which makes for an excellent tap tone. That means the dice have a very crisp sound when you roll them. To preserve the unique sounds we do not clear coat dice made from bristlecone pine.

  • Customize Your Dice


    After having made your selection above, please choose the die/dice that you would like to have customize. For instance, if ordering a Full Polyhedral Set, you may have the entire set customized, just the d20, or only the six sided dice. Please note this option will set the price for Engraving options and Embellishments. 

    Engraving Options


    We offer 2 styles of engraving. Our standard engraving style burns the outline of the number on each face. This outline style of engraving works well with our Infill technique of Embellishment, and is great for adding a splash of cost effective color to your chosen dice. The second style of engraving we offer is a Raster Engraving style. This process burns solid numbers into each face of the dice and works very well with our Inlay techniques of Embellishment, which allows us to make use of real metal alloys and crush semiprecious stones.

  1. Josh G.

    I really want to know what these die sound like hitting the table. Would it be possible to get a recording of the sound? This is actually a huge factor in deciding which wood I will purchase.

    • Collin G.

      Yes, if it were possibly for you to post a video of you rolling these like you did for the teflon d20 it would be very helpful.

    Hi Charlie

    Would you be able to post a video to YouTube that demonstrates what these dice sound like?

    Thanks!

  3. Jon

    I would like to add my voice to those asking for a rolling video. I’ve narrowed down to 3 wood options, and that could be the deciding factor.
