OpenForge is now a patron supported project. I use the resources that my patrons give me in order to get the resources to let me create more sophisticated tiles with a greater level of detail. Please, support me, and I’ll deliver an ongoing stream of awesome gaming terrain. You can find more about OpenForge and Masterwork Tools at our:



Here I'll show how to assemble a 2x4 section of docks. You will need:

  • docks.decking.2x4
  • supports_beam.4x.* (print 2)
  • brace.x2 (print 2)
  • brace.x2.join.end2end (if you want to join more then one together at the seam
  • 2 pilings per brace

So, how do you pick the pilings? 1x/2x/3x/4x is how many squares tall. If it's 2x, that means the dock surface will be at 2x high. 2x+ means the dock base will be at 2x high.

You can decide if you want to glue the braces on or press fit them so you can swap braces out.

The parts

Add the supports, and use the braces to make sure they are far enough apart

Glue the supports to the decking

glue the pilings to the braces with the squarish chunk under the bottom of the brace

This is a join brace that lets you attach two docks together end to end

Everything glued

Spray paint in flat black primer. For paints I use Raw Umber, Burtn Sienna and Honey Brown from Americana.

Paint the parts in the raw umber all over. Don't get in all the cracks, you want some black showing from underneath.

Lightly fleck the burnt sienna over the parts. I generally paint with a fairly empty brush, and hit it with the sides. (Note: wrong paint pictured)

Drybrush with the honey brown

You make some of the coolest things!! If I may request a project. I know you have made castle, sewer, and hovel like walls with floors but I am trying to complete my main 3 exploration comps (castle, hovel, & cave). I would really like to see you make cave walls and ground sometime in the future seeing as they are one of the most explored places in D&D. I know as of recently you became a lot more busy so it is just a thought.

There's a very nice set of cavern tiles on thingiverse by lifeburn: http://www.thingiverse.com/Lifeburn/collections/cavern-tiles

Talking to my patrons about if they wanted me to do caverns sooner given that these exist or other things, the vote was to do other things. I'll get to it eventually, but they are very serviceable.

I do have a site now where patrons vote to tell me what to work on and can float ideas: http://openforge.masterwork-tools.com Though you do have to be a patron to vote, you can still create ideas.

Thank you once again for your great work. I am glad I voted on these.

How about a ladder post?

Thank you :-)

I plan on probably a total of 2-3 docks constructions kits, one of which will include a ladder
