My wife found this plan for her state qrtrs. I t was alot of fun and interesting to make. I used only pine and a early american stain. I really like how it turned out and so does she.

I love this! It really beats the flat cardboard ones out there. Very nice job. Thanks for the post.

Cool. The quarters always pop out of the cardboard ones. I need to make something for my collection.

Great idea Dan, now to find all the quarters. I’ve never seen that design before where did you find it? If you need a MI. quarter let me know.

A very nice design, we have all of the quarters,

but I haven’t decided what kind of display to make yet, this one got me thinking.

i got this plan from Meisal Wood Hobby. tenontim that is the correct plan. It said to paint it colored but I the wife didn’t like that so I just painted it a brown color. It is called Early American (MiniWax) and a no gloss Poly. It was my very first one so it was kinda an expirimint. I can tell you though I had a lot of fun making this and I learned a few things especially about a scroll saw and I FELL IN LOVE WITH IT. Thanks all for viewing and posting on this project!

I didn’t care too much for the painted version of this, either. Maybe some different, contrasting woods would be nice. I’ve had a scroll saw for years. Used it once. My wife was suppose to be the “operator” if I got one.
That’s yet to happen. Maybe if she had a project. But then I’d have to share my shop with her. Maybe I should just keep this to myself.

Have your say...
