My brother-in-law works for two churches and they needed to have a place to temporarily keep the collected money until they could deposit it in the bank.

These are made from red oak, red oak plywood and birch plywood (back/bottom/baffles). The crosses are made from 1/8” walnut- thanks “Littlescope” for inspiring me to use the scroll saw. Finished with golden oak stain and a couple of coats of poly. Note to self: piano hinges are a pain!!

Comments and criticisms are always welcome.

Thanks for looking,

Lew

Those came out beautifully Lew…
Oak has got to be my favorite wood!! I can’t think of another that has that certain rich glow and warmth to it…
Thanks for the honorable mention my Friend, but you’re the one who did the great work here!!
These will be collecting offerings for many, many years… You should be very proud!! Well Done!!
