African Padauk Wood Dice

African Padauk, with its distinctive reddish hue, has been used in woodwork and construction as far back as the 10th Century BCE, when King Solomon used it for the pillars of his temple. Later on, it was also used in kingly chalices for French Kings Louis XV and XVI. Water placed within these cups would turn yellow; the royals believed this was a medicinal ‘potion’. We do not recommend that you put these dice in your drinks, as they are covered in wax and will most likely make you the opposite of healthy. But there’s no denying a touch of royalty will be brought to the game with these dice!

Our wood range of dice are crafted using CnC machines to achieve perfection in shape. After crafting, our wood dice are treated with a clear varnish once to maintain as close a look to natural as possible while giving your set of dice a longer life. We engrave all our dice based on centre of gravity. It is harder to achieve a perfect weighting with wood, but we are happy to say they are more precise than plastic, and we believe them to be the most perfectly weighted wooden dice made to date. All our dice are made from responsibly-sourced wood (Sourced using all appropriate government guidelines).
