Here is a Custom Air Force Coin holder I custom made for some clients.
It holds 24 coins and is made of solid oak and walnut.

The center portion contains an Air Force Emblem that is raised on the Walnut.

Thanks for checking it out!!

Very nice peace. I keep meaning to get into the shadow box and coin holder area of woodworking. Keep up the good work.

I do business with the Air Force Base in Montgomery, AL and I have noticed the guys collecting these coins and some of them have some pretty elaborate displays for them. I like your display. That’s pretty cool.

Great job. I really like this coin display. The oak and walnut look great together. And, I like how you chamfered the oak, made the partition tilt and come past the chamfered oak. Awesome!

How did you do the air force logo? With a chisel?

Cranesgonewild, actually I cut the airforce logo out into pieces using my scroll saw, lighting sanded the edges and glued it back together. Tedious trying to cut the little parts, but I have the most success this way.

Thanks for all your great comments!!

This is a very nice work man! I wonder if I can do that. You can do business in making coin holder. This serves as my inspiration!

Hello Mike,
I am looking for the perfect anniversary gift for my boyfriend who is in the air force, and I think this coin rack you made is absolutely gorgeous. What would the chances of you making another and selling it to me be? How much would this cost and how long about?
Thanks so much!

Rose
