Here's another pic of the tower

There we are - this photo shows the hinged dice tray.

The dice tower looks great, Richard. Have you shown it to Phil yet? You never know, he might be able to sell some for you.
I'd be interested in buying one for Iain. How much were you thinking of selling them for?

Hi, Helen.

I'm not sure that it's a commercially viable proposition - Phil needs big trade discounts on everything, whereas even at £30 each (the figure I have in mind right now), I'm still making a loss on each one.

The purpose of the excercise was to make one very good tower for myself - but the setup costs were so steep, I need to make (and sell) a good half-dozen to come close to a point where I could afford to do it (forget "break even" - I think that'd be closer to £45 each).

And those figures are arrived at without my charging for labour (each tower takes about an hour to an hour and a half) or tools (I've spent about £30 on clamps and glue applicators, and the same again on glue).
