Ridiculiously layered coin holder

I did this project quite a while ago and sharing just for the fun and the absurdity.

I actually cut the layers shortly after getting my GF and then waited more than a year to glue it up.

I had originally planned to put a thin piece of clear acrylic with tick marks for # of various coins in the openings, but never tried it.

The openings are just wide enough so that I could interlock the pieces in the layout and waste less material.


Wow, that does look like a lot of work - but worthy of the end result! Unique, that is for sure.


Ha, talk about ‘everythings a nail when all you have is a hammer’.


Did you just piece the layers by hand and try to align? or did you have a dowel for each size to align them easier?


I intended to make a little jig to align them along the cut-outs, which are the same size for all 4 cylinders, but got impatient and started doing them by hand and it seemed fine, so I just proceeded that way.
