A stacking covered tray system to store and sort game counters, like those found in ASL (more generally any 11/16″ sq. game counters). I designed these at the request of a friend for his collection of ASL game counters. Each laser cut Arch C sheet produces five trays with dividers and covers. The trays can be made of MDF or other safe-to-laser cut material. This pattern contains five tray sets that will sort 6 counters in each of the 24 slots of each tray (144 counters total for each tray). The pattern is designed with a 0.5″ safety margin around the edge of the frame.
Formatted for cutting at 300 DPI on 3mm (.125″ or eighth inch) thick MDF, ply or acrylic using 24″ x 18″ (Arch C sheet size) the size across the bed of an Epilog Helix that I normally use. I have provided the PDF, AI and the SVG file that I converted online at https://cloudconvert.com/vsd-to-svg.
This file is provided at a nominal fee for personal hobby use and is shared “as is”. Proceeds from the sale of this pattern will be given to a gaming related charity. It is also published under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/. “As is” means that I am not obligated to redesign this product or make any formatting changes by request, unless…
a) I produced something that has a blatant error within it,
b) I have the free time,
c) You ask nicely, and/or,
d) We come to some sort of mutually beneficial agreement. Commissions might also be considered.
In no way is this pattern approved or endorsed by the past or current copyright holders or designers of Advanced Squad Leader (ASL). The use of their product name is in no way meant to be a challenge to their copyright or license. It is a mere fact that the counters from that game defined the design requested by a friend.
If you have access to a laser cutter you can produce five tray sets from a ~$1.00 sheet of MDF, spare time and carpenter’s glue. A fairly cost effective DIY game counter storage solution.
