  • 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...

      Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
      HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...

      My kids always call me since I am the one who probably did the stuff they are calling about.

      I know it's scary to get that call, but I'm glad to hear the charge exited where it did before it went any further.

      Probably hurts like hell and he has a copper taste in his mouth...

      Welcome to the forum from TN. As a Pegas Distributor, Pegas has the Super Skip blades which works perfectly with acrylics at a reduced speed.
