Project is a birthday gift for our eldest son. Poker chip case project is an adaptation of the one in Woodsmith Magazine (one of my favorites) Vol. 27 Issue 158. The top panel is the same Carpathian Elm Burl veneer that I used for the mirror project posted earlier last year. The wood is Kentucky Coffeebean one on the hardest and most contrary woods I’ve worked with yet. Finish is several coats of rubbed China Oil (Tung Oil) and the case is lined with green felt. Chips are casino grade with the ESPN Poker Club logo. Really enjoyed the project and learned several new techniques in the process.
Thanks for looking
