I was asked to come up with a going away gift for someone. Their time limit was 48 hours. I used a router inlay kit to cut the circle and then did an image transfer of our shop logo using gel medium and Mod Podge. I used a biscuit jointer to cut a slot for the coin. I am pretty happy with it considering the time constraints.

Thanks guys! @Bradley, I wasn’t expecting someone to recognize POL that quickly. =) Where are you stationed at?

I’ve met Killen when I went to Red Flag. Ray King was stationed here with me at Macdill. I noticed the pattern from the coin/poker chip and put it together of who it was for.
