This is my first attempt at posting here. On a cross country road trip my daughter and I saw coin banks shaped like log cabins in every tourist gift shop we entered. She asked me to make one for her. This is what I came up with. It is painted poplar. I left the wood rough to give it a rough, natural appearance. The “logs” were cut on a cnc machine. I made long box joints to look like overlapping logs. The roof is made from shims used to square doors and windows, split and glued in place. The coin slot is in the top of the chimney, money is removed through a plug in the bottom. The Grizzly in the window is for my daughter who just completed her first year ant the University of Montana.
