This piggy bank was a Christmas present for my Niece. It is made from poplar and finished with 3 coats of shellac.
The body is 3 laminated 3/4” boards and the legs are each 3/4”. The ears are a piece of leather as is the tail. To make the tail curly I wrapped it around a pen and wet it and let it dry a few times.
I was telling my wife how I needed a champagne cork for the bottom and the next day I found one in the middle of my back yard. It fell from the sky!
This was the first project with my Grizzly 14” Ultimate Bandsaw. I love the saw!
