Recently someone came to the LJ site and asked if anyone would be willing to build a poker chip case to be used as a raffle prize for a charity event. They left the primary design up to the builder but asked that it hold 300-500 chips and have a place to hold some cards and other small items. I decided to take the project on. This is what I came up with. This case holds 400 chips and has a card compartment that is approx. 1” X 6” X 7”. The poker chip trays, card compartment and Royal Flush emblem were cut on my CNC machine. It is finished with Early American Stain and clear lacquer.

Really like this. Did you use a CNC to do the carving? Also, the oak looks fantastic. What finish?

Super job. That would make a cool chisel tray also.

I’d say you nailed it….That someone who came to LJ’s with the request should be pleased with what you did….Well done !
