FREE Labs Project: Coin Bank

Post by Todd Bailey »

If you're like me, you don't really like to carry around a pocket full of coins and end up having small piles of loose change all over the place.

Sure, this project was inspired by a problem I have but it grew quickly into a beautiful object that could be used to save for all kinds of things.
An upcoming wedding, well-deserved vacation, college fund or just hold coins for the grandkids to use on their next visit. You could add a bit of
v-carving to the top or even a 3D decorative element from Design&Make to personalize your Coin Bank.

Hope you enjoy making this!!!!

I really like the design of the top portion - sort of a “funnel” for the coins to toss into, instead of the typical narrow slot where you insert coins one-by-one. Great job, Todd!

I think it is a great idea and is nicely executed.

That said, to paraphrase a famous movie line (Jaws): You are going to need a bigger bank. . .

for vacations and/or a college fund.

I use a bowl that I toss all my coins in, when it gets full (usually about $50 worth) I go by myself a gift in a tool store.

Hey MT...

Thanks for that. I do like how it turned out and the wood I happened to uses/find is very nice!

Excellent project with multiple possibilities (cornhole type coin toss, tissue dispenser-to hide your coin stash, etc.). I have multiple containers with coins in them and making these would dress the place up. Thanks Todd.
