I forgot about this little container I made 50 years ago from a oak pit plank that was being discarded by a local repair shop and a used scrap piston from my fathers car .
I put my pocket change in this every day and it just there but never thought of posting this old and my first recycle project .
I turned this on a metalworking lathe with a four jaw chuck and some tools I made myself .

Very Very COOL! Being over 60 I still have my first wood project that I made when I was 8.
I am glad you have kept and use your memento/project from the past.

Pit plank. Oil finish then, I guess? Cool project, and great that you still have it all these years hence.
I am glad however that the funky lamp and circle/post puzzle game I made in seventh grade shop have disappeared into the fog of history. They were pretty ghastly.
Still have the centerpunch and chisel holder from metal shop though.
