Quarter Holder for Poker Night

Several of us started playing poker online together during the pandemic lockdown. We would would use Goggle Meet so we could talk and see each other and Poker Stars to play.

We just started playing in person and I needed something to hold my quarters while playing. I grabbed some spalted oak (that I found in my firewood pile) and a scrap piece of Wenge and went to work.

I used a 1” Forstner bit to bore out the slots in the block and then cut it in half. Added the Wenge to hold everything in and 4 earth magnets to keep the top on. I forgot how strong those little magnets are. You can pick the entire thing up by the lid. The lid also serve as an extra holder while playing (If I am winning).

Cool little project dewpy... Why is it that you guys find scraps that would cost us Aussies a small ransom and a mortgage.

No idea how much a 1/4 is worth… a 1/4 of a dollar may be chicken feed but a 1/4 of $1K would have me calling for my security guards…

Whats the coin in the lid? Is that for the cab fare home when you lose your pants… otherwise it wouldn’t cover much.

Nicely done Drew and a good idea to keep busy during the lock down. Much better than stuffing them in your pocket.

Thanks everyone.

Duck – I epoxied a quarter in the lid to signify what’s inside. It was just a random last minute decision.

Beautiful piece for a high stakes gambler! Well done!

So you’d have to hand over the whole box to the cab driver? Maybe you should keep a heat gun in your pocket (battery operated of course)... here’s a small one to consider,
