Game Box

Craft a custom container for your favorite decks of cards

My family and I play a lot of games together. We enjoy all manner of board games new and old—and no shortage of card games. So I thought I’d store a few of our favorites in this fun box designed by senior editor Ken Burton. The project is a joy to make and it looks better on the shelf than messy stacks of cards. The box has two bottoms, the upper of which is custom-cut to hold your favorite decks. In this version, I made room for a couple of decks of regular playing cards for our War and Rummy sessions, and in the center is a cutout for family favorite, Uno. We also love Skip-bo, Phase 10, and the fast-paced Dutch Blitz. But you can customize the box to fit anything you like. Rout slots that hold poker chips, or get creative and outfit it for a board game. For a great gift, pre-load a box for other game-lovers. This version also features a tray to hold dice and note pads as well as pens for keeping score. I chose cherry for the box, accenting it with an ambrosia maple lid panel.
