Did you buy the cubes as cubes, or did you buy square dowels and cut them yourself?

Thanks!  Now that I've seen yours, I have plans to use this method to make some custom (non-numbered) dice as part of a Christmas gift.  (Mine won't look as good as yours, though! lol)

One more question about your dowel - was it 1" or 1-1/4"?  According to the Home Depot website, they have 1-1/4" in-store (but not available to order online), but our store jumped from 1" to 1-3/4" (which is huge!).  Also, Michael's had, in the wood craft section, a bag of 1" cubes.  It's cheaper to buy the dowel and cut it, but if you only need a few and don't want to go to the trouble, they're an option.

I thought 1-1/4" might be better, though, as it would give a tad bit of border around the inchies.

It isn't quite 1 1/4, but I suppose it IS a tad bit bigger than just 1" since there is a tiny border along the edges. I don't think it'd hurt anything to get the 1 1/4"! You can always make your inchies just a teeny bit bigger if they look strange. If they're on a dice, no one will know Smiley
