I designed these about 3 years ago and have been making them as holiday gifts, birthday/wedding gifts, etc. Choosing a penny with a specific date gives a great way to personalize it. People love receiving them.

One of these is cherry, the other is soft maple from my yard.

If you are interested in building one, I posted a video with complete instructions here: https://youtu.be/vy3nNAw2qTo

Thanks for looking!

I have to agree. I make all sorts of openers, even toy car openers. I am going to “invest” some of my loose pennies in some turned ones; just for the heck of it. Thanks for the idea.
