Using the width of the 3 x 3 board as a guide, tape or clamp a stop block to your miter saw 2-1/2 inches from the blade.
Although there’s enough material in one board to make 13 dice, you’ll want enough space to keep your fingers safely away from the blade on the final cut and to clean up the ends.
Remove about 1/2 inch of the board from one end to square it. Slide the board against the stop block and make your first cut. Continue cutting pieces until you have 11 or 12. Sand the ends of each block and carefully sand any sharp edges and corners.
To create dots on the sides of the dice, lightly dip the tip of a 5/8-inch dowel scrap in paint (Red Tanager shown) and stamp each face with the number of dots you want. Dab fresh paint on the dowel for each dot. Allow the paint to dry overnight before using.
For an alternative look, download the Dice Dot Guide and use it to trace circles on the faces of the dice. Then use artist’s brushes to paint within the tracing. To protect the paint, apply two coats of clear water-based finish after the paint dries.
