The backstory of these banks using old P.O. mailbox doors is here.

I made nine more banks for a total of 10. They all have buyers and all the money is going to the town’s historical society.

I spent seven hours working on the first bank. The other nine took me 27 hours, or three hours each. Since the doors are all the same size, much of the time savings was knowing the exact dimensions of the box to fit the door. This also allowed me to “automate” the cutting of the sides.

Very nice banks! You are correct, after the first one, the rest get easier. Super job for a good cause!

Those are really nice. I’ve always loved post office door banks.

Very nice work.

I’d like to find a few doors to make banks for my kids.
