    Turtle coin bank

    On a prompt of a fellow member of this forum about a year ago I designed a couple of little turtle ornaments. Recently another member asked about a turtle-shaped coin bank - you can't quite call it a piggy bank, I guess.... After some experimentation I enlarged and reworked the ornament and came up with this:

    The bank in its simplest form is made out of four layers of craftwood. However I included several 'upgrades' like an intarsia shell or moveable flippers. Since I never saw the need of buying a professional Adobe PDF maker, the plans are 8 Gif images. Each one should be printed on one sheet of paper (US-letter). So on your printer, select option: "Scale to full page-portrait' or 'print at 100 DPI'. You should be able to make the simplest version from the pattern on the first two pages. The remaining four pages are patterns for optional extras. Print and use according to your personal preference or whim.

    But most of all, enjoy...

    Well I just looked under New Releases on Fox Chapels site and found the book. Under "preview" you can see a number of patterns just not all of them. I am glad they showed at least a few of them and I know why they would show them all. Maybe they could show however, really small images of...
