    Yes, we have power. Lots of lightning and wind, but in my area, just some small branches. Unlike last year after Katrina when we lost power for four days.

    Poor people this week with the 100+ temps and no power.

    My wife works in Brentwood.
    Since you are posting I guess you have power. Your area got hammered.

    Instead of the screwed on cover for coin retrival, how about this.

    I did that on the first bank I made, didn't like the finished look. Then I did it the way in the pics I posted and looks so much better. Don

    Thanks. I'll look for the plexiglass... I was going to just screw through the front through the plastic and into the box sides...

    Thanks fo rthe tips.

    If you place a rabbet on the inside of the recess you can inset the plexi and use glacier pins (those points for installing glass) to hold it in place and you won't have to use screws at all. My customers think it makes a cleaner look since I have started doing that. Just a thought. I really like the look of yours as well.

    I use the thin plexiglas from Hobby Lobby. I dado the edges to recess the plexiglas, works pretty good.

    What are you using on the scrolled side to keep the money inside? I am thinking of using the thin colored sheet protectors from the officer supply store...

    I'm sure they will. Here's one I'm working on now. Did it a little different though, put an access whole in the bottom with an 1/8" bb ply cover to screw on. Don

    Thanks. And I won't put a scratch on it while I use it...


    Thanks again... I have several (4 or 5) small children in the neighborhood that I hope will like the idea.
