hi all,

to make a long story short, i'm making a set of roulettes to match my favorite PNY set.

two different inlays (though i doubt i'll ever have two tables). FDL mold (this project just happened to coincide with the FDL mold repair push). i sorta figured that the FDL mold matched a roulette theme, plus the larger inlay size makes the images easier to see. the original plan was for 6 colors, but--like all my sets--it just grew to 8. i chose a transport theme.... hence the taxi and subway images.

j5 is fantastic to work with (as always i understand). and so is david at CPC. many thanks to both.

though the design is set, i would appreciate any comments (pro and con). thanks in advance.

Nice! Do you have a decent roulette wheel? I have pitched the idea to my friends and local guys but have had mixed reactions.

no roulette wheel yet, but there is reasonable interest in the group that i play with. right now we play craps/poker/BJ. the first wheel won't be fancy though, too $$. a second one would be nicer. but the chips are an easy buy: unanimous. as i tell my wife: all the voices in my head are clamoring for more chips.

Very cool chips GC, I'd also be interested in a sample set to add to my PNY collection if you're selling them.

Nice sets, does the 7 on the train mean something (lucky number 7...?), just curious as it does stand out.
Very cool though!

I'd have to get out the samples, and I can't quite tell the colors without getting them out, but the orange and yellow hued colors...do they have enough contrast?

it just happened to be the picture that i chose. i also thought 'lucky number 7', but that wasn't the reason i chose that picture. i wanted an older style subway car (since the PNYs were made in the 90s) and i liked the background of the city.

the colors are: DG pink, DG arc yellow, canary, light green, blue, retro lavender, grey, and chocolate. i've been carrying around those samples for the last month or so and (IMHO) i think they will be ok. i wanted primary/secondary pastel colors for the chips (the grey and chocolate colors i added later in the design--thought they went well with the other colors). i spent a lot of time placing two colors together checking for contrast, but the real test will be after i get a wheel.

certainly! i've toyed w/ the idea of having a PCF/CT craps game/lesson, but wasn't sure if there would be much interest. i was sorry to have missed your last get together.

cheers,

Congrats on the set, they came out fantastic. I'm sure it was a pain but the difference in colors with a bit of oil is immense.

we did our best to match image resolution and got sorta close. here is the actual inlay that was submitted (taxi inlay):

.... a short while later....

uh..... looks like the uploaded image resolution is lower than actual, so you can't really see the details.... sorry.
