Challenge Coin Display

Made a new Challenge Coin Display for my office this weekend. I didn’t have any of the coins at home so just guessed at the width and depth of the grooves. Next time I’ll make the grooves a bit thinner and deeper. I also had to buy a 1 3/4" forstner bit, but the wood was scrap.

The top, the front angle and the front bottom are 3 separate pieces that I mitered. Would have been much easier to just glue 2 pieces together then cut the angle on the table saw. I had also originally had one additional row but screwing around cutting the miters I ended up having to whittle away one row.

Overall I’m happy with the end result.

Great design. I like the front row of embed coins. Nice touch for those you really want to highlight. Great work!
