I teach a course on computer security. Part of the course includes identifying how much you’re worth to identity thieves. I usually give a small prize to the person who’s worth the most and the person who is worth the least. This time, I made the prizes.
Today, I played with inlaid acrylic on medium maple (all PG). I inserted the acrylic into a wooden coin. Since the acrylic is almost the same thickness as the wood, you can see it from both sides. It took me 2 tries to get the fit just right (kerf is a beast!), but I didn’t need any glue – they are so tightly in there that there’s no chance of them popping out accidentally.
The picture shows 6 of my wooden coins. Half show the fronts and half show the backs. (And yes, the joke is that I call the least valuable person in the class “worthless”.)
