Made out of Red Oak and holds about 20 normal sized coins. Stained it contrasting colors using Natural and Red Oak stain and then multiple coats of spray lacquer.

Made this one in hopes of selling it to my Air Force buddies and maybe that would lead to making more of them. But it didn’t go like I thought it would. Oh well, it looks good on the mantle.

Great piece, nice craftsmanship. I’ve made similar ones in the past for my Marine Corps buddies. Do you have any of these for sale? My girlfriends brother is retiring from the Air Force in about a week. I just moved and haven’t had time to set up any of my wood-shop tools, so my woodworking abilities are pretty limited.

Have your say...
