How To Make Your Own Low-Cost Geocoins [wooden nickels]

FYI, we posted a new geocoin idea at How To Make Your Own Low-Cost Geocoins - Part 2 [Shrinky Dinks]

How To Make Your Own Homemade Geocoins ...

There's a cheaper way to do it. Jonathan and Lindy found a way to create your own, low-cost, custom wooden nickels for geocaching. Thanks!


For instructions go to Jonathan Swatkowski's blog at
http://swatkowski.com/jonathan/?p=118. Been having trouble accessing their site, sorry. You can get the general idea on how to make these from pictures here.


My solution to, "...they might still smear a little if they get wet." Maybe try spraying them with clear interior/exterior sealer enamel, like Valspar clear satin.

Hello there,
Sorry for the trouble you have had accessing my website. I hadn't updated that one for a long time and decided to delete it. I still have a copy of it saved and will re-post it for your and send you a link when I have it up!
