These are a few more small items I made in our shop because we needed them.
The bank is made from some remnants of a green slab of acacia wood and the hole warped .100” out of round after it was bored with the Forstner bits. The plug still fits, but loose.The bank was made to fit on the shelf of the Murphy bed and used to keep my loose change.

The coasters are 1/2” thick slices off a log and the cracks are filled with epoxy and turquoise.

All the pieces are finished with satin lacquer.

Cheers….Jim

Very nice Jim. You will need a Cool drink to test out those Cool coasters.

The Bank is just the thing for loose change. Lovely timber!!!

Regards,

Cliff.

Hey Jim, your change bank looks great. It is better than the plastic Cashew jar I keep my change in. I guess I should upgrade to one like yours. The coasters are really unique, I like them.
