    Hi Dan.
    sorry to hear about your sister. I know 'Thoughts and prayers' are a bit of a cliché nowadays, but still, I wish you, your family and her family lots of strength and good vibes. May you always remember her for the way she lived, not for the way she died.

    As for the turtle...

    In the meantime, here is my Italian tri-Motor ready to get a coat of finishing. I found that 1/8 in thickness for the hardwood accents is a bit of overkill. So may be leave that out in the final version or otherwise make the next model 50% bigger ànd use 1/2 in caftwood instead of the 1/4 I am using...

    I looked at the Fokker Tri-motor but with the way it's engines are suspended between the wings and the fuselage, it gets complicated quickly. However now you got me thinking, so who knows. A Fokker F.VII might be my next project.

    Here is the turtle bank glued, sanded and shellacked. In the meantime I have some ideas on how to redraw the plans with àll the stuff I since found out. Of course with my Inkscape skills, drawing the plans may take longer then actually cutting the thing, even cutting the all-out demo version

    Just finished the proof of concept for the turtle bank at least far enough to give an idea of the finished project. I included two coin slots to choose from: one in the back and one in the mouth. Currently the mouth can move out, which is something of an overkill, so I won't include that in the final...

    Work in progress

    Last week we hit a cold spell, and so my woodworking was limited to sitting indoors behind the computer making new plans. So I went and made some drawings for a plane that has been a favorite of mine ever since I saw a picture of it in a library book back in Belgium.

    This weekend temperatures...

    Ps, I watched the video and I recall this specific pattern being a one-page feature in Scrollsaw Woodworking & Craft a while ago, I don't recall the magazine number, but it must have been two years ago - approximately. Let me go through my stacks of old magazines. May be I can give you the exact...

    Okay. Guess I have to start making a piggy bank from my design then to see how I looks in real life instead of on paper. So come back in a couple of days to see some pictures.

    Just discovered your post. Here is my original plan for the mini turtles and then some rough and ready idea on how to turn this into a coin bank. I opted to use the turtle's mouth for coin slit and fix the bottom trapdoor with three woodscrews. No idea yet on the best width for the wood, but I was thinking...

    If I got it right you are looking for a piggy bank for coins shaped like a turtle? Or rather something like a bank or bench? In the first case, I have some plans for little turtle ornaments I could enlarge with a hollowed-oit center to drop the coins in.
