Turned in walnut then embellished with some details, this submarine challenge coin holder was a request by a navy wife who wanted something special for her husband who had just been selected and promoted to the rank of Chief. Sub measures 30 inches long and 3.5 inches in diameter. The screw blades (propeller for the land lubber’s) are less than a 1/16 of an inch thick(thin) maple.
About a week into the project the lady’s name rang a bell. It was then I realized that this Sailor and I had served together from 2006-2008.
