I made this coin bank to look like a street corner mail box. I made it using the brass PO box door and 3/8” oak. Quick and simple project finished with spray on Poly.

I really like the way your mind works. I have a couple of the doors laying around and I think I now know what to make from them for the Grandkids. Thanks for the idea Jim.
