Make your own yard dice!


Hey everyone! It’s Jamison from Rogue Engineer again. This time I wanted to share a super cool yet very easy DIY project that the whole family can enjoy. Every year we go on a beach vacation with a bunch of our family. We often find ourselves out side playing yard games and enjoying the pool or beach. Well this year my wife, Jamie, saw these awesome yard dice online but they were selling for $50! We had some scrap 4×4 and she made them in no time. Below I’ll show you exactly how she made them! Oh and you can find a list of yard dice games here.

  3. 4x4's are actually 3.5" x 3.5 "... So cut 6 pieces at 3.5" to get the cubes. The opposite sides of each die should add to seven (1 & 6, 2 & 5, 3 & 4). To make the holes you can use a spade bit, but I would use a forstner bit, either one would leave that smaller hole in the middle. Looking at the pictures I'm betting it's probably a 3/4" diameter hole. Then stain the wood with walnut stain, and a coat or two of polyurethane after that
