This Challenge Coin shelf was a long overdue project for a colleague who is retired Army and currently an IL state employee. The shelving and inner frame is made from Cherry attained from a tree he and his father took down decades ago. The Red Oak Illinois is from a historic tree brought down at the ILARNG HQ. and the Walnut was simply his desired choice of framing.

Put a half lap french cleat of sorts on the back in order to hang this shelf and as displayed using some of my own coins the shelf accommodates approximately 20 coins. Sanded to 320 and finished with 3 coats of spray on Shellac. Thanks for looking…
