These are 3 bingo money barrels I had planned to sell at the March 2nd sale, but my lathe broke down in the process and I just finished them today. They are made from pecan wood and have a bayonet style lock on the lids. I used 1/8 brass pins and carved out the grooves for the twist lock feature.

They have dimes inlaid in the top because bingo is a dime a game at our park . They are finished with clear lacquer.

cheers, Jim

...not quite familiar with bingo game and accessories, but those barrels look just fine. Nice work, I’m glad you fixed your lathe, so we can all stil enjoy in your turning projects.

Win enough dimes and you can buy a new lathe. Cool money barrels Jim. I exceptionally like the twist lock idea.

These barrels would look great as decoratives which double up as a loose storage compartment in the entryway. You could throw in your loose change in there, the rubber bands you have around your wrist, as well as those paper clips that magically appeared in your pockets.
