I remember there is a wargaming company on the web that has a small rectangular dice tray with a star symbol in the middle of it. Anyone know which company that is? Or where can I get a small rectangular dice tray?

Kitchenware section of any store

I glue fences to pieces of cheap floor tile. That way they look like scenery and not a box. Fences on the edge, greenish/olive felt on the inside.

Small plastic storage boxes. Put dice in, close lid, shake, read results through top, repeat… ;-)

Do you mean a tray to roll the dice in? Any small box lid will work just fine. If you want storage for them, boxes that check books come in are great.

Now that has to be the best idea I've heard all day long. I wish I'd thought of it before I acquired a bunch of cake pans.

I use the small half size jewelry trays from Dave's Baggage Train then line them with foam.

I got a couple of cigar boxes from the local Tinderbox Store (they give the cardboard ones away for free) and lined them with felt.

Word of caution if you don't smoke you want to locate them and get out fairly quick, they do allow smoking in the store so there are usually a couple of people sitting around puffing on cigars. They sell the wooden boxes for $3.00 USD each which make nice dice boxes etc.

I made a couple of these dice rolling trays in a couple of hours. The box sides and bottom are 2mm MDF, cut to size with a Stanley knife and glued together with PVA. It was brush painted with two coats of grey undercoat. The baize bottom is a piece of baize glued to a piece of card just smaller than the box.

Nice and tidy, and you can make the box whatever size you want. Each cost about £2.00 GBP in materials.

You could line any old cardboard box with felt.
Making a tray from foamboard would be pretty easy.
Butt join and glue with pva, use pins to hold together until set. You can also reinforce joins by gluing strips of paper to reinforce joints.
Google dice rolling tower.
Plenty of alternatives to buy or build.

One could use picture frames.
