This bank was an idea that Penn state industries came up with. (the slot insert). I made this for my niece’s Bat Mitzvah. Not sure of the wood.

Nice project! I’m guessing the Penn State lid is like a jar ring with threads on it and it just has a slot cut in it for the coins/money. Is that right?

The coin slot is an insert from PSI. The ring for the mason jar is glued into a 2 7/8ths inch recess in the wood.

Good Idea ;-) I wondered about that after I asked the question.
