Red Sandalwood Wood Dice

Red Sandalwood is known for its vibrant red colouring, sometimes used to create a natural red dye, and also for its medicinal uses. This tree grows in the mountain ranges of south India but doesn't do well in colder climates, as the tree will die in freezing temperatures. In spite of the well-known name, the South Indian Red Sandalwood is not aromatic! It is most popularly used for lumber (the reason it’s endangered) and furniture. Its rare ‘wavy’ grain has an acoustic quality that makes it highly popular in Japan, where it is used to make musical instruments.

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).
