So a few buddies and I started a poker game once a month so obviously I needed to get some good poker chips, right? But what fun is it buying an off the shelf chip case, when I have this lonely woodworking shop just sitting there waiting for me!
I did some research and found some really nice chip holder projects both on here and the wood whisperer’s site which got me started, but as my projects tend to do, it grew a little bit out of control and now I have about 30 pound case which will probably throw my back out on the way to my next game :-)
Unlike previous WW2 themed projects where I tried to really research the history and incorporate authentic symbols and information, this one is really purely fantasy. Although I know the allies did a ton of reconnaissance on the Normandy coast and beaches to prepare for D-Day, I have no idea how they stored or transferred those tapes/films. I just tried to include some appropriate symbols while the cards on the outside hint at the real purpose of the case.
I used Maple, Padauk, Walnut, Lacewood, Cherry, and Mahogany.
