Metal 12-Sided Die Sculpture

A friend of ours loves her dice collection. She has millions of dice of every kind. Her favorite is the 12 sided die. For Christmas this year (2018) I thought I’d surprise her with a giant, 12-sided steel die that she could use for a dice container as well as a display piece. So I set out to fabricate a steel 12-sided die with one side that functions as a door. This project was fun and different. It took longer to design and map out than it did to build.
