  • tractor bank

    I've been looking for a way to make a coin bank in the shape of a tractor. I've found an outline of a tractor that should work but I have no clue how the inside is done so it will hold the coins. Nor am I sure what to do on how to get the coins out. I've seen a lot of them that have plexi-glass on the sides and held by small screws. I'm guessing that three 1 x 8's would work for the bank. I'm sure I could figure out how to put the slot in the top for the coins to go in. So how would I do the inside of the bank where the coins are held? Is the coin space cut in all three boards? I would appreciate any thoughts or directions on this. I'm want to make this for a little boy for his Christmas present.

      They also have plans for banks. I bet if you just look at the pictures you can figure out how to do the one you want.

          Here's my idea for the kids tractor bank Christmas gift, Dan. I am thinking you need to do something like this. Of course this is with a tractor image i found online, not the tractor pic you have, but this is the general idea that you'll need to follow. On this example, i would cut only one of the three (or four layers?) with the stack, one with the wheel, just a suggestion, IDK. Anyway, here is what they seem to do with the bank patterns. Hope it helps you.
