I have been wanting to put one of these banks together for a while now and finally got around to it. I built it out of fir and added strips of redwood to make it more interesting. The box joint router jig does a nice job. I got a closet door pull and milled a slot in it for the coin slot. Then I used the round over bit on the corners and finished it with clear coat.

Really nice project.
I got hold of one of the larger ones at a yard sale and man it was a blast to make a box for it.
There’s something about making something new from something old that just feels right.
