Challenge coin rack as a gift. Made out of pallet wood and just a rough sand to resemble wood from an old ship. Tried out some new things, and added some LEDs to up the ante a bit. Is able to be hung on the wall, or has a stand for on a end table or dresser.

During this project I realized that skimping on a miter saw and table saw was not the best idea. The fence on the table saw (Skil benchtop) is incredibly flimsy and the miter saw (Skil as well) definitely needs to be fine tuned some more. Will futz around with some ideas when I have more time in the garage.

All-in-all, it was a fun little project for a Saturday.

Thats a really nice coin rack. You will not regret a new table saw. Skil brand is good for carpentry (cutting pine) but thats about it.
