projects : hako dice

Hako is a dice game created by Hundred Rabbits. It consists of eight dice. Each die has 6 unique faces that are each divided into four triangles.

To create my dice sets I used wooden cubes. These can be made easily with scrap wood and a table saw, or you can likely find wooden cubes at a craft store or the like. I used a ruler and pencil to draw the triangles as needed on each die. Then I used a wood burner to burn in patterns to create dark and light triangles. I finished it all with a natural finish danish oil. They have a very homemade look, but I think look quite nice.
