OMG, It’s done! This was a lot of work, but worth every second! :D
I present to you: The Dungeon Master’s Mimic! The idea behind this project was to make one single container that a GM, or well prepared player can store all their RPG needs in and easily carry them from game to game. And what other way to make a chest more roleplaying game related than making it a mimic? :3
It’s made from solid pine that I stained with a nice walnut stain and finished with briwax. All the hardware is steel and brass. It has a soft, 100% wool felt lining to protect the books it’s carrying The main compartment comfortably holds around 5-6 large rule books and a smaller secondary compartment holds an insert that can safely store all your dice, miniatures, tokens and pencils!
It measures 14 inches across, 9 inches deep and 10 inches tall. The main internal compartment measures 12 x 6 x 10 inches.
The teeth are solid wood, too and have been dulled for safety. (I’d still not joke around and slam it shut on your friend’s hand, though…)
This project was loads of fun, even though throughout the built I came across some rather annoying stumbling blocks. Making it would have been a lot easier if I had a table saw :P Still, I’m so happy that it’s finally done and am very proud of how it turned out.
I won’t sell this as usual through my Etsy store. It is a unique item that I put a lot of my heart and soul into and I don’t feel that Etsy’s “first come, first serve” policy on purchases would do it justice. Instead I have listed it on Ebay in a one week auction. I thought that way instead of whoever happens to see it the quickest, it will go to whoever wants it the most ^__^
Sometimes my feet can get so bad that they crack and bleed and I get sores underneath the skin. This pucture shows the best condition I can get my feet to look like after soaking them and having them skinned…peeled, whatever, 4 days after they lok like this and yes I do use lotion. This is a genetic condition I inherited from my grandpa’s side of the family. It has been somewhat of a curse and a gift for me. I can walk across hot coals with ease but I can’t get them sweaty, or I’m in for some pain. My grandpa comes from the Halvorson clan, Halvorson meaning from the rock. Seems a fitting name for my family. Some days I wonder if we have dwarven ancestry, that would be so cool or they’re like dragon scales or mermaid scales lol. I’ve let doctors take samples and look at them, they are still perplexed. It’s funny actally.
