Here are over 30 easy-to-make, wooden bank designs for the woodworker. They're perfect for use and even better to give away as special gifts to friends, children, and grandchildren. As a child growing up, you no doubt had a piggy bank or somewhere to store your pennies in a cleverly-designed shape. Perhaps it was in the shape of a pig, or even a cat! And maybe you wished you had it in another design. Each DIY piggy bank in this book features a creative plug that is an integral part of the original design. Each design has a unique and fun way to retrieve your money: for the rooster bank, take off his wing; for the teapot bank, open the lid; pull the leg off the rabbit bank to gain access to your precious coins. Each pattern comes with full-color photographs of the finished banks as well as shop-tested patterns, making cutting the wood easy and the assembly a simple process. Inside the book, you'll also find some basic information on tools, pattern layouts, and tips on purchasing the correct wood. That will have you designing these easy-to-make, DIY banks in no time.
