I saw a plan for this Magic Coin Bank in a Popular Woodworking magazine. I changed the dimensions to make it larger so I could add a talking module like the ones you get in greeting cards. The coin touches the contacts to trigger the voice when you insert a coin and push the drawer in.
This project started out to be an experiment. If it work out ok I was going to make two of these for our two little 6 years old Grandchildren Courtney and Chloe. After burning up my brain for a few days this is what I came up with. So I got one done and one more to make.
Video about the build
The wood is Mahogany and the dimensions are 7” W x 4 3/8” D x 5” H I use a button to make the knob, Supper glued a screw to the back, It’s a perfect size for the tiny draw!
Link to hear it talk. It’s my voice but I’m sure the Grandkids will want to change what it says. LOL!
See Talking modules here on ebay.
