My sister will soon be celebrating one year of sobriety. During a conversation a month or so ago, she mentioned wanting some sort of box for displaying her coins so she could be constantly motivated to maintain her sobriety. This is the design I came up with. I made a drawer pull that is in the shape of the Alcoholics Anonymous symbol. There is a recess in the back of the pull to accept one of the benchmark coins, so she cal always display her most recent coin on the front of the box and store the others inside. Rare earth magnets hold the coin and pull in place. I flocked the inside and used several layers of shellac to finish the box.

She will LOVE this and cherish it as she “trudges the path of Happy Destiny.” Also a nice box for your first BS box too.
