    Since I built a sunglasses stand, I figured I needed to build a coin display. I looked around the house and in the garage I had a piece of mirror polished stainless steel that was a Synesso Espresso Machine emblem. I peeled off the Synesso sticker, and cleaned off all the glue residue. I then taped off the top to give me something to mark measurements on, and protect the polished stainless.

    Next I drilled the holes around the exterior. The laid out the coins. It took quite a while to get them laid out properly, and line up where to drill the holes that will hold up the coins.

    Then it took a while to strip the tape, clean off the residue and add all the stainless bolts. After they were nice and tight, I took some time to polish the stainless again. I added the coins and this is what I ended up with. There are some pics of it inside the case also...

    Awesome result as usual. The coin display turned out really nice and I really like the bolt accent. Looking forward to your next project.

    Thanks! I get bored when my wife is at work. TV is lame, and I like to tinker with stuff.
    Thanks! Do you have a suggestion for what I should build next? I'm not sure as to what to do now.
    Thanks! The coin came with a pair of x-metal/ice iridium polarized Juliet's. when I got rid of the Juliet's, I threw in a different coin. I like this one a lot.
