“Things have been tough lately for dreamers. They say dreaming is dead, no one does it anymore. It’s not dead it’s just that it’s been forgotten, removed from our language. Nobody teaches it so nobody knows it exists. The dreamer is banished to obscurity. Well, I’m trying to change all that, and I hope you are too. By dreaming. Every day.”

Elder Sign (Custom Box) by ryoshi-un
Elder Sign (Custom Box)
Just in time for a Christmas project!

The Missus is a huge Lovecraft fan, so I bought her an Elder Sign game for Christmas, but I really thought I could improve the box it came in.
As usual, I used slats I salvaged from crates, because I currently don't have the means to work the thickness of the wood.

The fasteners and hinges I had bought online didn't fit very well, so I had to use regular ones, plus a couple of fake ones I made from cardboard.

I aged everything with the old vinegar + steel wool trick (I like to add a bit of coffee to it as well), then sanded unevenly, added the postage stickers and apllied a couple of coats of matte varnish, just to preserve the wood. The worn out look was very important. I chose not to age the inside containers, though, cause I liked the contrast.

And there it is! =D
Hope you get inspired by it and make your own version!

Quad-Deck MTG box by ryoshi-un
Quad-Deck MTG box
This was a birthday present comissioned last minute by a friend.
I had one day to shop for supplies and another to build it and, for the time I had, I think it turned out okay, though it lacks the level of detailing I usually like to add to my stuff.

The box is entirely made out of MDF lined with cloth paper.
I used a couple of my own tecniques to create the leather look using paper napkins and this is actually the first time I used half a glass bead for the eye, instead of resin, and I'm in love with the result, considering the lenticular effect has it following you around.

If you're interested in comissioning a similar design, you can send me a note! =)
(But keep in mind this isn't exactly cheap and quick work if you aren't a childhood friend XD)

MTG Box Bonanza by ryoshi-un
MTG Box Bonanza
Due to wedding arrangements and moving to another apartment, I haven't been as active as I'd like.
But I'm slowly getting back on the wagon, mainly by making Magic The Gathering card boxes in my spare time.

This post is a hub so I can link my top 3 all at once.

So check out:
  1. Wooden G/W MTG Deckbox
    I like things with more than one function, and I don't like carrying unnecessary bulk, This is why I make my tokens half the size of regular cards, so they can fit the side of the box. So I decided to buy ultra mini dice and give them a drawer beneath the cards.I had to wait a month for the locks and hinges to arrive, but it was worth it.
  2. Cereal Box MTG organizer
    I had a family-sized cereal box laying around and my cards were still in the same shoe box from 10 years ago, so I made this while house-sitting for my mom (my shop is still at her place).
  3. Quad-Deck MTG box
    This was commissioned last minute by a friend who wanted to give it to her boyfriend (also a friend) for his birthday. I had one day to shop for supplies and one day to build it, but I think it turned out very nice, thanks to spray glue and my own ModPodge recipe.

This is probably still a WIP, because I'm thinking about upgrading the iside space.
