Moneybox built with plywood 15 mm, walnut inlays. I made a small portholes in the front wall, with a small glass disc fixed with epoxy glue. The fund is
fixed with 4 screws Kreg (for a child is difficult to find the bit
appropriate). Dimensions 17×17x21 cm, finishing with water varnish.

Nice job on that bank.
At first I didn’t understand how it all worked but your link really helped. I may even make one or two for the grand-kids. Thanks for sharing!
