I play Texas Hold-em poker with some friends occasionally. While playing, it’s important to protect your cards so they are not accidentally swept up by the dealer. Setting this on top of your cards is what that tries to accomplish.

The disc is made out of black walnut with maple and purple heart for the inlay. A few coats of spray-on Deft lacquer for protection. Simple wood burning for his initials.

Sorry for the terrible pictures – didn’t realize it until I already gave it away.

Completed October 2011.

Cool design and build but I think it should be in the shape of Texas since it holds em :)) The cards that is.

Nice design! I might consider that if I was a good card player but I am sure I would end up betting with that with my first good hand and lose it, ha, ha.

Poker and woodworking. Two things I love. I use and Eisenhower Dollar coin in a clear protector. I never thought of making one out of wood. I will defenately have to do that.
