I saw a post about the magic coin bank and I loved it.. I thought it would be perfect for my nephew and it looked fun to build.
The only thing was my nephew was young and I was afraid he would get upset when the money disappeared and he could not retrieve it! So I added a little magnetic draw on the side so he could retrieve the coins whenever he wanted.
I like the way it came out. I used Cedar for the draw mechanism, oak for the box and walnut for the top and bottom. Then spray lacquer..
