Popsicle sticks and wood burning fun! 6 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
I have no idea if this is the right section for this but figured I would post some custom pieces, namely the bookshelves since William asked about some.

Bear with me as I've never posted content stuff here before lol. The images were too big and I don't have time to resize them, so I put them on photobucket (also a photobucket noob). There are some large chests, doors with holes, broken, with runes, and bookshelves and some wall tile decor. The bookshelves have a couple removeable items on the shelves to swap them out, like the open book and potions, but the entire shelf has a cardboard back so you can pull the entire contents out as one piece and swap them around (like shelves of potions only, or only books, or only items).

Stuff

Doors

DF Tiles

Bookshelves

Bookshelf close up

Low low cost of.... popsicle sticks, super glue, wood burning tool. :)

Hopefully those links work... here is the 'album' if it works better: s1291.photobucket.com/user/evandariel/library/custom%20accessories

Is life so dear,or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it,Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death

Nice! I've been looking for ideas for making individual books to put on modular bookshelves. I love the idea of using Popsicle sticks!

nice work.

you have giving me a couple of good ideas. The wood burning is a great idea and then one can stain the doors to give them an distressed look.

did you make the books?

I am new to crafting stuff for my game. of course my stuff all looks like the builder were drunk when they made it :D

Hey thanks guys glad you like it.

TK everything there except the DF tiles and goblin are homemade. The colored binding books use colored card stock or cardboard (those were made with tissue boxes lol). Couple folds and glued around a thin chunk of Popsicle stick for the binding and inside for the paper on the open books.

You can stain or paint them for a more realistic look including the doors but as you may have noticed even my dungeon tiles are still unpainted lol.

By the way its so cheap for a huge bag of sticks that you can practice until you get it the way you want.

Craft sticks and wood burners are very useful for adding details. I stained these with Min wax before I glued them up.I did not take a photo of the wood burner tip I used I can if some one wants to see it.

Nicely done Evandariel! I like all the variety in all the small items. The open tome on & bookstand is an especially nice touch. And the dragon claw trophy on the wall is a hoot!

I'm a carpenter myself, though I usually work in epoxy putty / polymer clay at this scale, so it's always nice to see someone doing something cool with wood.

I love seeing other's craft projects. If either of you have the time and inclination I'm sure I'm not the only one that would like to see a step-by-step of your personal process. It is cool to see both the results and the how.

I'd also recommend trying the free chopsticks from the Chinese restaurant. You can make awesome ladders and bridges from them very easily.

My players rue the day I bought "Dragon Mountain". Ever since they give every creature a bit more respect. You never know when the GM will decide that this group is crafty...
