Making a custom dice box. Part IV

Paige designed a dragon head that we both liked on her computer.  She saved it and we transferred the image to the main computer.  We then printed the image to a size small to put on the metal plate.

Estimating the center of the metal plate, I firmly taped the paper around the plate.

With a wood block underneath, I slowly punch down along the printed outline of the dragon head.  I tried to make each punch as close as possible.

The metal plate is now ready to drill holes in and stain.

I have painted the inside of the box with black spray paint.

I also purchased clear paint to seal the exterior upon completion.  This was about $3.50 a can.

Lastly tonight, I glued the corner plates on with gorilla glue.
