A friend asked me to build him a display for his military challenge coins. He asked that it be able to hold 70 – 80 coins and it be unique from others. Other than that I had artistic license. So I came up with this case.
It has 9 rows for coins and they can hold 9-11 coins depending on the size of the coins. Each “shelf” is hel in place in a stop dado. The door has doweled half-lap joints and the case has doweled rabbet joints. The AF Emblem on the glass is on the inside of the door and is applied with frosted glass spray paint. And inside back is acrylic mirror.
If I was to do it again the only thing I’d do differently is use a piano hinge as opposed to the 4 small hinges. Enjoy!
