Re: Padded Bags for Your Dean's Box to help the Dill Family

Just to clarify, the cost of these bags I pay is probably in the neighborhood of $45 each. The remainder ($65 - $45 = $20) will go directly to Dean. I am also going to add an additional $5 per bag myself which will bring the total donation up to $25 per bag. I'm also making and paying for a bag for ...

Padded Bags for Your Dean's Box to help the Dill Family

I'm going to make some Deluxe Padded Suede Bags specifically to hold a Dean's Box. The bag will be durable and beautiful black suede, padded, lined with red satin and will have my standard ring closure. The colors are meant to match the decore in Dean's Shoppe. Dean's Box is too nice a prop not to h...

Re: Gazzo Egg Bag dvd

The presentation and especially the sucker bit, gags, etc. can all be done with any eggbag. Great ideas, displays, lines, bits, etc. My own personal preference is Car...

Re: FS: Wooden Chopped Dice Stacking Cups

Brad, I agree about the diameter. This diameter of this cup at the mouth is the same as the leather cups to maintain the same appearance of difficulty.

You're right on about that.
That was a strict requirement.

Using 6 dice instead of 4, of course, also adds to the apparent difficulty as well.

FS: Wooden Chopped Dice Stacking Cups
