Solid Red Oak…this guy is heavy. Made for a retired E7 out here in California, and I’m working on a wall mounted unit made from the same figured Oak stock. Pretty straight forward, but I did add dowels on the sides for more side grain to side grain glue surface to ensure the sides wouldn’t ever pop off due to being glued to thirsty end grain. I didn’t prefinish but the Varathane spray-on poly did a fantastic job, and the brown paper bag rub after the final coat left such a smooth finish. This was my first project where I was able to use my newly acquired branding iron. Many more to come! Thanks for looking guys and gals.

I like the design on this. Simple but displays the coins nicely!
