That’s awesome man. Great looking piece. I’m working on some small challenge coin displays, but nowhere near that large.

Wow. That would be the largest challenge coin holder that I have seen. I am thinking of doing one for a friend, but haven’t done one before. I was wondering what the gap in the wood should be for holding the coins, some seem to be anywhere from 1/8th to 1/4”. I was thinking of making a 1/4” dado, but an thinking that might be too small? Looks great by the way.

Jetwhoop, I use a Freud 1/4 box joint blade for my grooves. The way challenge coins are going these days, that is the minimum. I sometimes widen a few rows to account for thicker coins.
