I like it. I inset state quarters in the tops of bottle stoppers. People seem to like them and I’m making some sets for silent auctions “For the Cure.”

I also inset them in the bottoms of bowls, usually surrounded by a couple of rings. It seems like more people, especially turners, look at the bottom than at the rest of the piece and they always talk about the bottom. The quarter and design give them a little surprise, something they didn’t expect. As often as I do this, a quarter-sized Forstner bit and a dedicated Jacobs chuck make things go a lot quicker.

You can inset all kinds of things. Makes a good moment of interest and something that might catch a potential customer’s eye. Well, if I had potential customers.

It looks great and interesting. The coin adds a nice accent. Like the shape especially the base. Great turning!

Have your say...
