Dice Tower Scroll Saw Pattern.
Dies your family play board game that require dice rolls. This dice tower will make a nice additions to those games. When you drop the dice in the top of the tower they hit three chutes for a clean roll. The dice then fall into the tray where they are contained. No more dice on the floor.

The tower stores flat in the tray by laying it on it's back.

Watch the video to see the tower in action.
The video is 48 seconds long.

Assembly Steps: 

To save money I suggest making this from 1/4" and 1/2" Baltic birch plywood.
I used walnut for mine which looks nice but costs more.
Cut the parts
 Glue the chutes to one of the sides.
Glue on the other side.
Glue on the back.
Glue on the front.
 Glue on the decorations.
 Glue the bottom retainer wall to the bottom.
I used 1/4" thick wood for the walls in the picture above.
I changed it to 1/2" in the patterns so the dice can't jump the walls so easy.
Clamp and let the glue dry.
Sand and finish.
Install red felt in the tray.
