    Default FEBRUARY 2019 Project of the Month - "Pot-'O-Gold Coin Bank"!

    Hello,

    We traveled to the end of the rainbow for you and retrieved this cute project idea that you’ll love - the Pot-’O-Gold Coin Bank!

    The project design features a pot (or kettle) cut and carved in slices with your CarveWright CNC. The slices are stacked and glued together to form the traditional kettle shape. Plastic “gold” coins are affixed to the top of the pot to give the illusion the pot is filled. The coin slot is centered between the “gold” coins and a hidden cover in the base of the pot allows access to the “gold” when the pot is full.

    This will make a charming gift for kids of all ages (including adults!) and is an encouragement to save up their coins in their very own pot-’o-gold!

    The project uses just the 1/16" Carving Bit and the 1/8" Cutting Bit. No other bits are required. Overall dimensions are about: 7" round x 5.5" tall

    Main items you will need:
    1) The Project Files (included):
    • Lid_Sections.mpc
    • 1-2-3_Pot-Sections.mpc
    • 4-5-6_Pot-Sections.mpc

    2) Boards with the following dimensions:
    Lid Sections: 0.75" x 9” x 21”
    123 Sections: 0.75" x 9" x 30"
    456 Sections: 0.75" x 9" x 30"

    NOTE: Do not use boards that are smaller than specified above unless using an appropriate jig.

    3) Ply or hardboard scrap 0.125” thick, four #4 screws, bag of plastic gold coins, self-stick silicon or cork pads for bank bottom

    4) Hot glue gun, drill, sandpaper, wood glue, stain and/or paint and clear finish

    5) A Dremel-type rotary tool with assorted abrasive attachments to aid the sanding process. A spindle sander and small belt sander can help speed up sanding/surface prep.

    Apply the finish of your choice. Here’s what I used on the sample Pot-’O-Gold Coin Bank made from Select Pine:

    • Applied three coats thinned Bulls Eye SealCoat overall, including the interior surface of the lid via the coin access hole. Sanded when dry.

    • Applied Flat Black acrylic paint (two coats)

    • Applied several light coats Krylon Clear Flat

    • Glued plastic gold coins onto the lid using a hot glue gun

    Michael,

    I was pleasantly surprised to check the forum today and find this charming Irish project. Getting my wood ready for carving as soon as it is available. Thinking I might like to find a pattern of a leprechaun to attach to the side or top. Thank you!

    Michael T. you done a good job again!!! i wished that I could make some but that will have to wait, because I can't work in the shop until this Summer. The reason is because I've had 3 surgeries this winter and can't do much. Thank you for a good project!!!!

    Great looking project. This is one for my little helpers to make on a weak end sleep over (Grand Children).

    Every one has a photographic memory. Some just don't have film.

    Hi Henry,

    I think they might still be finalizing the video edits, but should appear in the store soon!
