Was supposed to be a “piggy bank”. However, I got so interested in turning the nose, I forgot to bore the body first. Duh! So now this becomes a design study for a piggy bank. Live and learn.

This is so cute. At least, one piggy bank was saved from cutting.

It’s a nice piggy bank and a creative way to make the project. Nice work!
