Challenge Coin Holder


Recommended Posts

Hey all!

 

I just finished making my challenge coin holder. I made it with maple ends and a solid walnut body. This was definitely one of the most interesting projects my grandfather and I did this year. 

Two of my favorite coins shown are the Hampton Roads Council of Veteran Affairs and the EOD coin. These were given to me by good friends and sadly one has since passed. 

If there’s any interest, I can make more of these. Currently I can make the sides out of maple or walnut and use these brass screws or “

Love the brass screws!

 

Very well done and excellent display.

Thank you! It looks really nice with the maple. I didn't realize I bumbled the last sentence. I have "antiqued" screws that look better with the walnut sides.

Great idea, well done! Think it will work with collar discs, too. Thank`s for showing.

I think it could. It would need a smaller router bit though (I used a 3/8" bit).

WOW! That's a beautiful board. You did a fantastic job on it; is the red & white a separate piece or did you attach those shelves directly to it?

The trim the coins are sitting on, are fabricated of PVC trim, cut down on my wood jointer to fit upon the stripes....

 

The MAPLE is actually the S.C. stare tree, it is the Saba Palmetto, found along the coast from S.C. to Florida...
