Snakewood Polyhedral DiceHard does not begin to describe this wood. When I first tried to machine Marblewood and snapped off a 1/4 carbide end mill, I rewrote my tooling path to be a bit kinder to my end mill as those things are expensive. Since then I haven’t broken a single end mill. That is until the day I tried to make the first set of Snakewood dice. Even with the kinder gentler tooling path it snapped the bit in two.

Not only is Snakewood hard, it is also rare (and it smells like a dairy barn in a hot Texas summer when fresh cut). Much like Texas Ebony it grows in a small shrub like tree that isn’t very useful for making much of anything so it tends not to be harvested except in small sizes suitable for turning projects and the like.

snakewoodAs you can already tell Snakewood gets its name from the snake like markings it bears. Typically Snakewood is a deep red with black markings. This particular piece is lighter than normal and tends toward the orange end of the spectrum. Snakewood grows in the northern reaches of South America and is a cousin of Bloodwood. They are both super dense woods ranking in the top 10 densest woods of the world.

 

  • 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.

    Very useful information particularly the last phase :
    ) I take care of such info much. I was eeking this particular information for a very lengthy time.
    Thanks and good luck.

  2. This site definitely has alll the information and facts I wanted
    about this subject and didn’t know who too ask.

  3. You really mke it seem so easy with ypur presentation but I ind this matter to
    be really something which I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking
    forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  4. Howdy would you mind letting me know which webhost
    you’re using? I’ve loaded yyour blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a
    lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a
    reasonable price? Thank you,I appreciate it!
