Love Birds - Coin Cutting Tutorial

Oct 04, 2015 05:32 AM | hotshot in Tutorials & Resources

Note: As I continue down this coin cutting path, I have found a few better ways of doing things, and have greatly updated this tutorial to reflect some better methods. This tutorial ca be seen in a little cleaner format at: http://www.coincutti...ting/index.html


This tutorial initially began as a post of one of my projects but it got morphed into a pretty detailed and structured tutorial along with some video to make things clear. I have cut many many coins and over the course of the last few years, have worked out a method that has turned a painful process into a very manageable one. So this entry and the posts that follow it should help anyone that wants to give my method a try.

Happy Cutting
