Magic The Gathering Card Box

My oldest son recently discovered "Magic The Gathering".   I really liked my D&D dice box, and thought perhaps I could make a card box for MGT decks, based on the D&D dice box.

Here is the outcome:

Once you open the box, there is room for a 60 card deck (with a few extra cards).  Unfortunately, the price label of the MDF was on the reverse side when I cut this, you can see it in the living hinge.  It's not too bad, since this is just a prototype, and I will eventually cut it with nicer wood.


You can remove the left hand side to easily slide the cards out of the box.



There is also a small hidden compartment at the bottom of the box.


If you open up that compartment, there is room for a 15-25 card "side deck".   MTG players can substitute cards from the side-deck into their main deck between rounds.

  1. Hi Ben, I've come across your work via glowforge community site and been entranced with your designs and builds in your blogs. In the box above I love how the wood is able to bend to form the curves. What are the details of the cut/scoring you used and material exactly?

  2. With the GF, I now use the default settings for Draftboard for MDF. They seem to work pretty well.
