I made this fun Minecraft TNT Prank Bank with my oldest son (the Minecraft addict/expert in our house). The bank “explodes” when a coin is put in it, and it’s a lot of fun to make and use.
I just used some scrap 1/4” MDF I had laying around, but it would probably be better with a plywood (I don’t know how the MDF will hold up to repeated “explosions” from the mouse trap, but so far so good. I did use some hot glue to strengthen that though).
I just used cheap craft magnet strips to hold it together until it explodes, and I used the image transfer trick from Wood Working for Mere Mortals (thanks Steve!).
I wrote up an instructable that has all of the build details, downloadable templates for cutting and the images for transfer.
If you have any Minecraft fans in your house, this is a quick and fun project. Check out the video to see it in action.
