A gentleman approached me at a craft show and asked if I could do a custom coin display for a friend.
He brought me the coins and I inset them into a piece of walnut flooring I got from an elderly woodworker who was closing his shop.
I’ve never done a custom coin shape other than round so I did a prototype with his coins and a couple of mine to figure out the best method.
Forstner bit for rough inset finished with a dremel router.
The round coin is inset into blue felt.
The other two coins are inset directly into the wood (pressed in by hand).
Finish is hand rubbed 2#shellac polished on the Beall Buff.
Appreciate any comments, critiques, or suggestions.
