I made these a while back and just realized the only picture I’d posted was when I tried cutting my finger off a Trepanning (circle cutting) bit.
Made from scraps of dunnage left from squaring stock on the tablesaw.
Each hole is cut to fit the coin.
But in requiem, the wood is so thin, (about 5/16” thick) and so figured that two of them moved so much they cracked too much to repair so they ended up in the fireplace.
The next iteration will be from thicker wood.
Sanded to 320 grit.
One coat of 2# shellac rubbed off while still wet then polished on the Beall system.

I like them, they have a “modern” look to them.

Have you ever tried General Finishes Top Coat Gel. I’ve been using is solely for the last few months and think it is the greatest stuff since sliced bread. I just put on with a old cotton tee shirt, first coat is generous. Then after about 5 minutes wipe off the excess. I have been putting about 3-4 coats on most things. Most of the time I don’t even have to sand or buff between coats. Comes in satin, semi and gloss. You mentioning the finish you used on this reminded me to mention.

You make scraps look good. They’re great pieces to highlight the interesting challenge coins you have.

Have your say...
