This is a nice design and the wood is wonderful.

What a great way to add a nice design element to the piece, and all for only $0.12! I guess you used different vintages of pennies, from the looks of it (1982 and older being copper).
Thanks for the idea, it’s a good one.
Did you use double-sided tape/turner’s tape to temporarily hold the pennies, then hit them with sandpaper?
I guess this would obviously also work with any denomination of coin, if you wanted slightly different metallic shades, as well as sizes, although material costs would be a little more. :-)
