A coin bank for my niece

It’s not perfect, but I’m pretty happy with it.



That looks great! Did you cut both the wood and the acrylic with the MPCNC?

Yes I did. I should have had a little more tolerance built in. I had to file the acrylic a little bit to get it to fit. I drilled the screw holes by hand, but I wish I had incorporated those into the design. It would have been easier to redo the acrylic if I had screwed something up I think. Lessons learned.

But it all worked out. My niece was very excited to put in all the change people gave her. She’s 3 years old.


That is an awesome idea. How deep is the pocket?


The pocket is a little less than 1 1/4". It is two 3/4" pieces of oak glued together. Stands about 8.5 inches tall.

Oh, so you cut a hole in one and a pocket in the other, then glued them together? Smart. Great project.

That’s really nice! I was wondering how you were able to cut a pocket that deep… two pieces makes sense.
