Turned Banks

After turning all those magnificent projects and selling them for big profits you will need a place to keep your cool cash. So here you go!

Sorry about no pictures spent ten minutes trying to post them, giving up for now!

Nice idea WW.
Should maybe make it without the rubber plug. That way the kids would be more inclined to save without 'robbing the piggy bank'. I remember having the glass piggy banks as a kid. Spent many a day with a butterknife stuck in the slot trying to rattle some change out.

Apologize for being such a bonehead, posting pictures pretty much idiot proof if open the window and click on upload.

Simple project using any wood you have on hand. Hardest parts are top with coin slot and base with plug. I make big coin slots so do not really need a knife to rob the bank and could very well do without the rubber or plastic plugs.

First banks made had brass coin slots you nailed over opening. I used plastic plugs, which do need a knife to get open. When stopped using brass coin slots switched to rubber plugs. Found rubber plugs easier for me to work with and think recipients like them better too.

Omitting base plugs easy to do. Add a little more to your base and waste allowance, do not use brass coin slots.
