Money display - need some help with ideas
Hi all. As a Christmas gift I was going to build a display for a bunch of foreign currency that has been picked up over the last few years. Here's my idea.
I so far have built a 1x2 box out of oak that's 24 x 16.5. I was going to attach a simple backboard to it and fill the box with a piece of foam insulation wrapped with a nice fabric that will be able to show off the currency. For the outside, I picked up a piece of oak trim that I was going to hinge and put a piece of plexi inside. The more I think about it I'm not sure if it's going to work out. I'm not 100% sure how to get the money to stay. I was thinking about recessing it somehow in the foam or putting another piece of backboard or something on front that I have to manually cut out for each piece of currency (paper and coin). This is difficult b/c they're all different sizes.
Does anyone have a better idea for how to display money? I want the front hinged so more can be added in the future from other places.
