Some more designs including a couple of slotted holders in bookmatched cuts and a three-piece set of holders and a change bowl.
This dunnage wood has some remarkable grain and is harder than oak.
But the dust is VERY irritating, I have to wear a dust mask and keep a fan blowing the dust away from me to avoid a nose-bleed.

Thanks for the look see! Having a few challenge coins stored in my memento draw, I think I will borrow your idea and get them out and display. As you know each one has a story behind it, I love to relive from time to time.

Jim, the wood is a mystery.
All I know is that it is dunnage for steel tower sections shipped in to the states from India.
The raw material is about 2 1/2 by 2 inches, 24 or 36 inches long.
I have a stack of it 3 by 3 by 7 feet tall in the shop.
