The Coin Display Tray

Post by sobfu »

A friend had some coins that belonged to his grandfather that were sitting in a box in a cupboard, they had great sentimental value so he asked for me to make a breakfast tray to display them so he would get the pleasure of seeing them everyday. I was keen to show off the software by doing some great carvings but he was keen to make the coins the focus so we settled on a simple tray but I did manage to do an engraving on the acrylic back of the tray. The artwork was taken from a picture of an engraving on his grandfathers watch.
The tray is Victorian Ash with a 4mm glass insert on top and a 3mm sandwich black/white accrylic sheet.

It may be simple in design but I think I would never of attempted this without a CNC and vectric software.
