Since the base is made from some kind of tin, it also makes a satisfying sounds when the dice shoot through!
Here's how a Dice Tower is supposed to work, and an example of CNC Workshop's dice tower:

And here are some photos that I found online of Dice Towers that people have made - functional and attractive terrain pieces:
- Can of Pringles
- Cutting Board
- Stanley Knife
- Nail File
- Super Glue
- Spray Paints
Take your can of Pringles and eat the deliciousness within. This will give you energy and motivation for the next 12 minutes of construction labour.
Using your Stanley Knife, cut the top 3 inches and the bottom 1 inch off the Pringles container (see picture below).
For the rest of these instructions, we'll call the the top 3 inches piece the Top Piece, the bottom 1 inch piece the Bottom Piece, and the remaining middle piece the Middle Piece.
You'll also want to wipe down the insides of the pieces with a damp cloth, to get the extra Pringles flavouring out. If your cuts weren't smooth, use your Nail File to smooth out the cuts on the cardboard.
Cut a small section out from the bottom of the Top Piece, 1 inch tall and 2.5 inches wide. Don't worry about being too accurate with these measurements - it's a rough guide.
Hold onto the section you just cut out - we'll be using it later.

Now we're going to make the Dice Chute. Use the spare piece from Step 3 to the measure the width of the Chute against the Middle Piece (as below). Now, out of the Middle Piece, cut the Chute - about 3 inches tall, and 2.5 inches wide.
Phew! That's all the cutting done. Now, glue the Top Piece to the Bottom Piece (see the pictures below).
I used Super Glue because the points of contact between the two pieces are minimal.
Slide your Chute in like so. I should sit with its edges in corners of the section you cut in Step 3.
Again, I used Super Glue for a bit more strength.
Put your Pringles Lid back on and you're ready to paint it up and add any other detail you want!
