Another Coin Project. This time a Key Chain.

Here is another quick and simple project using the coin forstner bit set. This one is a key chain with the abbreviation of every state. Man I love these simple projects that end up looking great. Sometimes it's just nice to go out in the shop and put something together fast. You don't always have time to cut fancy fretwork but you need that shop fix.

Grab a piece of nice hardwood scrap left over from another project and within an hour you can walk out of the shop with a nice gift for someone.

Turn quarters into dollars.

I purchased this 6 PC Coin Forstner Bit Set from Amazon.com. Here is the link. I received it today and was wanting to make a quick project. I designed this simple pendant using the Kentucky State Quarter. The set comes with a bit for the US Penny, Nickel, Dime, Quarter, Half Dollar and dollar.

I can think of several different projects with this set. The fit of the coin is very nice. You can also buy a depth stop with the kit but if you have a drill press you can just use the stop on the press. The kit cost 29.95 on Amazon.

For this first attempt I only had a circulated coin that was a little tarnished. It would look nicer with a
brand new quarter.  If you need to find a good choice for jewelry supplies check out Fire Mountain Gems and Beads. You can find finished Sterling Silver and Silver Plated chains are very low prices. If you plan to make jewelry to sell its a nice place to start looking for supplies. I'm thinking these pendants if made well could bring $20 to $25 in the right location. There so simple to make it might be worth taking a few to your next show just to see how they do.
