Being at Fort Riley hone of the Big Red One I have had the opportunity to make a few of this, sorry for the poor pictures. This one is red oak and walnut the one is blood wood, it is hinged to open so the coins can be changed .

Nice, I spent some time there at Fort Riley during my 20 years also. I can’t say I really miss it very much.

Sweet, what would i have to do to get one of those coins? Be nice to use them to get a round of beer :-)

1SG, Those are outstanding. I served 8 years and ETS’ed back in 2000. I was in the 1st INF for 3 years including a six month tour in Bosnia back in 95 – 96.

I only started woodworking this past year, but I’ve been thinking about making a shadow box for my patches, medals, battalion / brigade coins, etc. Your post is just the motivation I need to get off my butt and make something.

I really like this one, you did a great job. I see the huge coin collections and find myself preferring the smaller, specific collections like this for sure. Again, great job…very neat.
