General Questions

Dice Vault

What is a Dice Vault?

The idea is simple – a personal case to hold a single set of gaming dice. The Dice Vault is an original Wyrmwood Gaming product, launched in October of 2013 via Kickstarter. If you’re into role playing games, chances are good you’re also into dice. If you have a set of dice you love, the Dice Vault is the best way to show it.


Dice Vaults come in two sizes. Our smaller size holds a set of 7 polyhedral dice – this is the set D&D players are familiar with. We also carry a larger sized vault which carries a set of 10 polyhedral dice.


Love the Vault, but don’t have a set of dice to match? Are you looking for a perfect gift set? We’ve got you covered.

I have non-standard dice. Will they fit in a Dice Vault?

The Dice Vault was designed to accommodate the standard, 16mm size gaming dice. These are the most commonly sold and used dice for role playing games and board games in general, and come in the widest variety of colors and finishes. However, it can also hold 19mm d6 dice, such as casino dice, comfortably, though you will most likely have to remove one layer of the included foam insert. Of course, if you’re using larger dice, you’ll generally fit less in the same space. Lastly, it can hold two rows of mini dice (12mm) with the foam removed, for a total of up to 52 dice in a single, capacity 10 Vault.

Tabletop & Personal Dice Tray

What’s the difference between the Tabletop and Personal Dice Tray?

The Tabletop Dice Tray is a perfect tray to share with the whole group, at the center of the table. It’s got a larger rolling area, and a storage tray perfect for not-in-use dice, counters or chits, and of course our Dice Vault.


The Personal Dice Tray, on the other hand, is great for tables or areas with limited space; one of our favorite places to use one is behind a DM screen. It’s about half the rolling surface, but with higher walls, and is overall more portable than the tabletop tray.

Will my Dice Vault fit inside my Dice Tray?

Yes… almost as if it were designed to do just that. What a lucky coincidence! Of course the Capacity 7 Vault fits it as well, with a bit of room to spare.


In the Personal Dice Tray, a Vault can be stored lengthwise (and up to three can fit in a single tray if stored on their side), while in the Tabletop Dice Tray, the storage area is sized to fit a Dice Vault perfectly.

The rolling surface – what’s the difference between oiled leather, felt and suede?

Oiled leather is the premium option, and comes with a surcharge for added material cost. Functionally, the differences are somewhat slight – leather is a good bit thicker, so rolls will tend to bounce a little less, and the sound is more muffled. Suede and felt are thinner, and rolls have that clunk of wood being struck that some find satisfying. In terms of care, suede is a more sensitive material; while it is rather unlikely to be damaged or torn and will hold up to normal use just fine, it is vulnerable to stains and is notoriously difficult to clean, as owners of suede jackets can attest. To address this issue, we recommend not spilling stuff on it. Come to think of it, we actually recommend that for all of our products, and most flooring, furniture and clothing, too.

How do I take care of the rolling surface?

The suede and felt rolling surfaces require no special care other than occasionally being brushed off – do NOT use surface cleaners of any kind with suede – it is porous and will absorb liquids, likely leading to permanent stains, so please, just give it a gentle brush now and then. You can also use a bit of clear tape – scotch, not packing – to gently lift up the odd hair or other bit of debris that lands on it. For leather, you can see our recommendations below.

What’s the cutout on the Personal Dice Tray for?

The cutout on the Personal Dice Tray is designed to accommodate the end of the ramp from our Magnetic Dice Tower. The two products were designed together to function as a whole. Along with the Dice Vault, they form the Wyrmwood Magnetic Dice Tower System..


back to top
I use heavy/metal/sharp-edged dice. What rolling surface should I use?

While all of our products are designed and crafted to last, and backed by our Craftsman’s Promise, we recommend users of metal, sharp-edged or otherwise unusually heavy dice opt for trays with an oiled leather or felt rolling surface. Suede, being a thinner material, is less well-suited to heavy impact and sharp edges..

Magnetic Dice Tower System

What is the Wyrmwood Magnetic Dice Tower System?

The System consists of three parts: The Dice Vault, a Dice Tray and the Dice Tower. These components are all designed to complement each other. The Dice Tower is held together via magnets, so that the tower can break down and be stored inside of the Dice Tray, alongside a Vault. All three pieces together form the Dice Tower System.


back to top
Does the Magnetic Dice Tower include a dice tray?

The Dice Tower is built to work with both the Personal and Tabletop Dice Tray, which are sold individually, allowing you to purchase a Tower to work with the tray you currently own, or you can purchase either along with a tower according to your needs.


The Dice Tower, when purchased by itself, will be shipped in a custom made Kraft box with the same internal dimensions as our personal dice tray; this means it can also be used as a tray.


back to top
Why magnets? Will they affect my metal dice?

The magnets in the Dice Tower are very small, very powerful rare earth magnets. While they grip firmly and strongly, their pull is limited to a small area, and will not affect dice rolling through the tower. In fact, many metal dice are made from non-ferrous materials, and would not be affected by magnets at all.


The magnets are our solution to a common problem with dice towers; the choice of portability vs rolling capacity. In full-size towers, you have the option of rolling many dice, and larger dice, without the tower jamming. However, their size makes taking them with you on the go difficult. Portable towers solve this problem, but at the cost of rolling capacity. Our tower offers both, by allowing it to be collapsed into an easily portable form when not in use. The combination of excellent rolling capacity and easy portability is the heart of the Wyrmwood Magnetic Dice Tower System.


back to top
How do your dice trays work with the tower?

The Magnetic Dice Tower is constructed to work with any of our dice trays. The ramp height will allow it to roll into either tray by placing it alongside them on the table. The Personal Dice Tray features a cutout on one side where the tower ramp rests, while the tower can be oriented anywhere along the outside of the Tabletop Dice Tray.


When the tower is broken down, it can be stored in either tray, as well. In the Personal Dice Tray, it stacks inside the walls, allowing for easy portability. In the Tabletop Dice Tray, the Tower will stack flat, allowing the tray and tower to be stored easily when not in use, even on a shallow shelf.

Deck Box

What are your deck boxes made of? How are they made?

Our deck boxes are made using wood, glue, leather, and metal snaps (and love). Like all products, our deck boxes are made of solid wood. We use a strip of thick, oiled leather on the lid, with snaps for a sturdy, durable enclosure. We build them all in our workshop in Massachusetts, United States.


The Wyrmwood deck box design is the result of a lengthy process of research and development. The box couldn’t be overly bulky, but the sides had to be thick enough to ensure sufficient strength. The leather strap needed to be thick and strongly attached to the lid, but also visually appealing. The lid had to be set into the box securely, but easy to pop on and off. The strap design needed to be easy to use, but without excess material on the sides… and so on.


We aren’t just building a container to toss some cards in – cheap deck boxes are almost literally a dime a dozen. The Wyrmwood deck box is something you can take pride in – just like the deck inside of it.


back to top
Is the lid secure? How’s it work?

The lid is a single piece of wood that rests inside the box. We cut a groove cut down the center, and glue in a leather strap using very strong adhesive. Snaps are set into the side of the box and the caps set into the leather strap. To close the box, you pop the lid onto the top where it naturally settles in, and snap the buttons and you’re good to go. You can also open it however you like – unsnap one button and pull it to the side, or unsnap both and set the lid aside altogether. Alternatively, re-attach it with the lid around the back of the box, leaving it in the open position for a hassle-free solution while you’re playing (regrettably, this last option won’t work with the largest size deck box)! This might sound a bit confusing, but take a look at a deck box while reading and it should become clear.


back to top
The snaps on my box are tight!

Well, that one wasn’t a question, but we’ll cover it anyway. Don’t worry; the snaps are likely to be a bit tight because they’re new. The snaps themselves, as well as the leather, will loosen up with use, so all you need to do is get out there and get using it and soon it’ll adjust. And since you just got a brand new high-end deck box, that should be all the excuse you need to do just that!

I double sleeve my decks. Will your deck boxes work for me?

Yes, as long as you get the right one! We designed our boxes to be tailor-made to your deck. This is intentional, and we feel this is another feature that sets our deck boxes apart from most others, which tend to have a lot of excess space. We’ve tested each box and noted in the description how many cards in single AND double-sleeves you can expect to fit inside. But, to summarize here, if you double sleeve, you want to “size up” one box. For example, if you have a deck of 75 cards that you’ve double sleeved, you’ll want the 100 size box, which will hold 100 sleeved cards or 75 double sleeved cards. The XL size was specifically created for 100 double sleeved cards.

What is character?

Central to Wyrmwood is a love for natural materials like solid hardwoods and natural oiled leather. These materials are not manufactured or mass produced – each piece serves as a unique example of the variability found in the natural world. As such, we occasionally will have pieces that feature attributes described by the term “character.”

Types of character include, but are not limited to: knots, voids and sapwood. Knots are circular interruptions in the grain where a branch had grown from the trunk. Voids are actual holes in certain species of wood where a knot has fallen out or the wood developed in such a way to create a gap – these are especially common on highly figured species like English Wych Elm Burl. Sapwood refers to the outermost wood of the tree, sometimes markedly different in appearance than the inner wood, or heartwood, which has the characteristic appearance of a given species. The presence of sapwood in a piece can create a striking contrast – for example, very noticeable light, creamy areas in a normally dark wood, such as Bolivian Rosewood. You can see an example of this in African Blackwood – note the lighter area in the Dice Vault.

back to top
Why would I want a piece with character? Why would I not?

It has been our policy to hold such pieces back and only offer them at convention appearances, where customers could handle them and see them in person. Many clients react very positively to such pieces, seeking them out as examples of natural variation that are wholly unique and unusual. However, some view these natural variations as defects and flaws – a piece with character is by definition atypical of the species, so if one expects a piece more representative of a specific wood, one with character may not be desirable.

We’ve decided to leave the choice up to you: it is now possible to purchase pieces with character through on our website. If you would like such a piece, simply check the box and, if available, we will send you a piece with character.

Please note, however, that we cannot hand-pick character pieces; therefore you should select this option with the understanding that a wide range of pieces fit this description and you are open to receiving one with any type of character described above.

Of course, we pride ourselves on our service and attention to detail, so if you have a special request, you can always contact us. And, of course, these pieces are still covered by our Craftman’s Promise.

General Questions

How do you ship? Do you ship worldwide

We ship most packages via USPS, using a combination of First Class & Priority Mail services. Expedited shipping is available – you can always contact us for a quote – just let us know what you’d like and when you need it.

We do ship internationally, also through the USPS, which hands the package off to the receiving nation’s postal service when it arrives. DHL Express is also available for international shipments that are needed fast. As above, just contact us and we’ll let you know the rate.


back to top
When will my order ship?

We are able top ship most orders within two weeks. From there, it is typically no more than three days delivery time in the US. We try and have all our offerings in all 16 core woods in stock and ready to ship at all times. In the case where we are in the process of hand crafting your piece, it may delay shipping up to three weeks. Of course, we’ll make every effort to get your order out to you as soon as we can, but if you need something for a gift or upcoming event, you’ll want to order well in advance to make sure you get it in time if possible. Please feel free to contact us and ask about turnaround for your order – or to ask if we can make a deadline prior to ordering. We’ll let you know if we can’t, but we’ll do our absolute best, within reason and the laws of nature, to accommodate.


back to top
Do I need to know anything about wood? How should I store my Wyrmwood product?

On the proper care and feeding of your Wyrmwood product: under most conditions you should be fine, but wood is a natural product, and as a result it does react to certain environments. You’ll want to avoid storage in temperature or humidity extremes and exposure to sudden temperature shifts. For example, if you decide to leave it in the bathroom with a hot shower running for a few days, it’ll probably warp a bit (but then, so will the walls) – likewise for the opposite extreme. These are standard issue cautions for not just our products but any fine product made of wood. The good news, though, is that you really don’t have to worry much about these things, as for most users it won’t be an issue. Just don’t leave your Wyrmwood piece for an extended stay anywhere you wouldn’t want to be, and it will be fine.


back to top
How durable are your products? Will metal/heavy/sharp-edged dice damage the wood?

In short, they’re tough. Wood is a strong material, which is why it’s been used in houses, boats, floors, tables and so much else throughout history. Of course, our products aren’t designed specifically to withstand severe abuse. Wood can crack if you hit it hard enough the right way, leather can be cut or ruined. But under normal usage this is very unlikely to happen. In short, don’t think twice about tossing a deck box or Dice Vault in your bag or backpack. Do think twice about tossing it out a window or running it over with a truck.


It’s worth noting that wood species vary widely in density and hardness. Gabon ebony and purpleheart are very hard and strong woods, while ancient Kauri and mahogany are significantly less so. None should be considered fragile, but there are significant differences, and one may wish to err on the side of hardness if using heavy dice with one of our towers, or if you expect the item to take a lot of abuse. Of course, in the event of damage, you’re always covered by our Craftsman’s Promise. If you would like further guidance in choosing the best wood option for your play style, we’d be happy to help!

Doesn’t leather dry out? Do I need to treat it?

Leather, like wood, is a natural product (something we believe in strongly here). Yes, it can dry out and deteriorate, if it isn’t taken care of, especially if exposed to the elements. Of course, unless you’re doing a lot of gaming outdoors in monsoon season, that last isn’t likely to be a major concern. That said, oiled leather is very hardy and easy to maintain, requiring only a little attention every few months or less; it’s made to be durable. But if you want to keep the leather strap on your deck box or the surface of your dice tray in the best possible shape, you can use saddle soap or any number of leather cleaning/conditioning products made for expressly this purpose. We definitely don’t recommend DIY solutions, as some of these can do more harm than good. Any dealer of fine leather goods will have a variety of products for this use.


It’s important to note that suede is NOT interchangeable with leather, and should under no circumstances be treated with any liquids or cleaning substances. Unlike leather, it is porous and will absorb liquids, likely causing stains that are difficult if not impossible to remove.


back to top
My item doesn’t look exactly like the one in the picture – why?

Your piece is yours, and won’t look exactly like any other piece. Photos are best used as samples of the material, but variation should be expected. Wood, leather and suede are natural, and that means they’re subject to variance and change – while the pictures will give you a very good idea what to expect, grain patterns, features/figuring and color will all vary slightly from one piece to another. You can count on getting a quality made item in the design and material you specify, but understand these are not mass produced, artificially made items. Your Wyrmwood piece is a natural product and these qualities make it truly unique.

I looked up a wood, and there are many different shades of it – why?

Wood is a natural material, and part of the beauty and charm of that is that, over time, it will change. This is a response to oxidation and UV exposure, and while the changes can be slowed or controlled to some degree by limiting exposure, they cannot be fully stopped. A few woods are more subject to this than others: Cherry will gradually darken in a process which takes years, but this process is quite rapid initially – you might even notice a difference from one day to the next. It will grow more striking as it changes.


Purpleheart is sought after for its color, however it’s important to note that the color of your piece will shift with time and UV exposure. It will begin a quite vivid purple, but will slowly and gradually shift to a dark brown with a more subtle purple tint. This is nothing to be concerned about- quite the opposite! It ensures that your piece will grow along with you.


back to top
Okay, so how long until I get my order?

We ship via USPS. Since all orders are customized to varying degrees, lead time will vary. Ideally, we try to keep most of our products in stock and ready to ship, however occasionally demand outpaces our production, and we’re building items to order. In such situations, it can be 1-2 weeks, based on the current volume and production schedule. However, if an item is in stock, it can ship in a matter of 1-3 days and domestic shipments will take that again to arrive. Please feel free to contact us and ask about turnaround for your order – or to ask if we can make a deadline prior to ordering. We’ll let you know if we can’t, but we’ll do our absolute best, within reason and the laws of nature, to accommodate.


back to top
I made a mistake in my order! Am I doomed?

Probably not. While we cannot guarantee that an order, once placed, can be modified, in most cases we can change something if necessary. Alert us as quickly as possible! Obviously, once an order ships, there’s nothing we can do, but until then we will try our best. Of course, we want you to be satisfied with your order regardless, and we’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen, so don’t panic – just let us know what we can do.


back to top
I’m not satisfied with my order / my order isn’t quite what I expected / I changed my mind.

We have a policy called the Craftsman’s Promise. As Craftsmen, we take our work very seriously, and we stand behind each and every product we make. If you are unsatisfied for any reason, let us know, and we’ll work with you to make it right – including paying for return shipping. No restocking fees or any other such nonsense.


This covers the uncommon situation where flaws or defects have slipped past us and made it out the door, as well as damage occurring in shipping, but it doesn’t stop there. If you don’t like a particular piece of wood due to color or occurrence of figuring, flecking or other natural features, we are happy to take it back and switch it out for you. We don’t believe in compromises when it comes to our craftsmanship or service, and we don’t want to ask them of you when it comes to your satisfaction. We do ask that you understand that variation is part of owning products made with natural materials, and hope you can find the beauty in the piece we build for you – but if you really can’t make peace with it, or if something goes wrong, we’re absolutely committed to making it right. Just let us know.

Do you do custom work? What’s the process like?

We certainly do take custom commissions, and these can range from simply purchasing an existing product in an exotic wood we don’t normally work in, to entirely one-of-a-kind, heirloom pieces you’ll cherish for a lifetime. Getting started is simple: you can email us a request at custom@wyrmwoodgaming.com, or see our Custom Workshop page for more information. We’ll work with you to flesh out a design and source materials that fit your specifications, budget and needs.


Whatever you have in mind, Wyrmwood craftsmen can help you make it a reality!

I have a different question. Why isn’t it here?

Well, it may be an infrequently asked question, and we probably aren’t going to put up a page for those. But don’t despair! You can still get an answer: fire away! We take pride in providing personal communication and service. When you contact us, you aren’t going to be talking to one of 300 customer service drones after responding to a useless automated email telling you stuff you already know. You’re going to talk to us, and we’re even going to talk to you back. We know; a novel concept. But we think it’s just crazy enough to work.
