Default Another Hobby

Well... with the weather getting colder I decided it was time to get a little woodworking in. What better than to make something that would fit in well with metal detecting. So..... I thought it would be nice to have something to keep all those (hopefully) future coin finds in. I put together this coin storage box. It is sized to hold those 2"x2" cardboard coin sleeves. Maybe when I get it filled I'll have an excuse to make another one.😊

That's some real nice dovetail work there! I wish I could do that half as good as you. Really nice work!

Very nice. Folks that can make stuff like that have a talent. I used to think I didn't have the patience for it, but I finally realized it was pure talent that I lacked. My hat is off to you!

Very nice. Woodworking is an art and I am not an artist. But your work definitely shows talent.
