Coin Slots Part 1
To make the coin slots I started with a piece of wood cut to the correct width and height and long enough to cut all the slots from the single piece. Next I marked out the location of each of the slots.
I first tried cutting the slots individually using a router bit mounted in my drill press. Unfortunately, this technique didn’t work out well so I needed to find another approach.
Instead of trying to cut the slots individually I my router table to cut a slot all the way down the stock.
I then cut a piece of wood that was the thickness of the groove and glued pieces of it on either end of each slot.
Finally I sanded the top smooth and ended up with pretty clean slots.
