My daughter asked if I would make a couple of banks with very specific requirements as she wants to teach my Grandchildren about earning money through chores, etc. It’s a throwback concept but I’m guessing by the time they are teenagers, they’ll have a better handle on it than most adults. Keeping with the austerity theme, they were made with scraps of Maple, Padauk, and Walnut. I only had to purchase the Lucite. (notice the anti-glare properties – guess that’s why they use it in NASCAR windshields) The Walnut “coin slot” strip can be removed to expose larger holes for emptying. I didn’t put much thought into the design but it kind of reminds me of Art Deco – also a throwback earlier period.
Thanks for looking.
