A friend of mine wanted to show off his years of excellence with a nice coin rack. At the rate he receives these military challenge coins, he wanted an upgrade from is old rack and have a little room for expansion. I whipped up some plans and got to work. The levels are made of 3/4″ oak with a little recess cut in for a centerpiece. The centerpiece and sides are made of 3/8″ afromosia, one of my favorite woods.

Don’t know what all of the “coins” are for, but the coin holder is outstanding. Excellent selection of of materials and the workmanship speaks for itself. Well done.

Thank you!

I finally really KNOW what those “coins” are and how & why you want them displayed!

You have done a wonderful job documenting your construction methods and, above all, the final product WITH COINS filling the display piece!

Thank you very much…

I guess you have relocated from Hawaii and are somewhere else now?

Good to see some more work from you! You always do great / NICE work!

Take care…

Bill, thanks for the comment! The coins are earned by servicemembers from senior officers and non-commisioned officers as a recognition of their work on a particular mission, or perhaps due to generally being a good team player. My friend has over 15 years of service, so he’s earned a lot over those years.

Joe, thanks for the kind words as always. You’re right – I made the move out of Hawaii a few months back. I’m in Georgia for a bit before I head up north.
