No real story, I had some scrap pieces laying around so I decided to make a few small carriers as gifts for a few of my buddies. The wood was dyed with three different colors of aniline (red,black, and brown).

I must be old and senile cause I don’t know what these are. A carrier? Educate me more. The work is nice and the color great but what do you do with them?

I agree with Old Wrangler … I am old and don’t know what they are.

From the white one in the background, I would guess they are for badges or medallions.

MonkMan: Great looking small carriers! The dye job turned out very nicely!

Wrangler, Jimmy: They look to be representations of USN aircraft carriers. The slots in the flight decks are used to display Challenge Coins, such as the ones in the rear of the photo.

Gents, Thanks for the comments. Mean_Dean is exactly right! My buddies are former Marines and now they work for the Navy managing their aviation material. They have been collecting some of the ships’ coins so I thought I would make something so they could display them.

Nice work, one day I will get around to making something for my own collection of challenge coins.

Guess I am too old for abstract art. Now that someone has told what and why, I understand a whole lot better. Very interesting, I would have never figured it out. I didn’t know about the coins either. Neat things to collect and trade, kinda like Olympic trade pins. Now I can’t figure how it was done. Is this router work?

OldWrangler,

The grooves were done with a router, then I cut out the shape of the Carrier with a jigsaw. I usually finish the work off with a round over bit then stain,sand,stain,sand, until I get the color I am looking for. The towers were done with my table saw. Thanks for asking.
