I was asked to make poker chip tray inserts for a poker table. My rendition was made out of Packing crate poplar and off-cut Plywood pieces. The ‘client’ (my dad) made me swear I wont use expensive wood. So This is what I came up with. The wood all just worked so well together forming a faded sepia tone throughout.

Sanding out these suckers was a b… bloody hard job! I rigged little sanding helper for my drill motor which helped a lot. Finished with BLO, 2 coats of poly and paste wax.
