I was asked to make a piggy bank in a short space of time. Because of this I constructed the box using only butt joints with Titebond III glue. This is the first time that I haven’t used a woodwork joint of any kind, the top and bottom are glued straight on to end grain. The simple construction appears to be robust and well bonded together. I hope the bottom doesn’t fall out of the box when it’s full of coins! Time will tell.
