Extract from back cover of book:

Hide your pennies in these cleverly disguised and easy-to-make banks!

Thieves will be hard-pressed to find the plugs that keep your money safe in these scroll saw and bandsaw banks. Each bank features a plug that is an integral part of the original design. Want to get money out of the owl bank? Take off his wing. Need some change from the teapot? Open the lid. Looking for a dollar in the whale bank? Pull the tail.

Full-color photographs of the finished banks and shop-tested patterns for both the scroll saw and the band saw make cutting and assembly easy. The author also includes basic information on tools, tips on purchasing wood, and ideas for pattern layout that will have you designing your own banks in no time.

About the Author: Harvey Helm started making banks in response to a group of high school industrial arts students who needed "something fun" to make. His first bank, the piggy bank shown on the front cover, was so popular that Harvey continued to design banks. He currently has more than 50 banks in design, the prototypes of which are cherished by his grandchildren.
