The back story of the bank is a sad story of property crimes. Recently, my niece’s home was burglarized. The Jack wagon crook smashed my great nephew’s piggy bank for a whopping few dollars in change.

So, I asked – what type of bank would the lad like? Rainbow was the answer.

So, this is what I came up with. I am leaving it up to him to pick the colors and do the painting. A bit of ownership is always good.

The front quarter is 1965 and the back quarter is 2016, thus making a birth year connection.

PS
God bless the CNC machine, what a time saver. Sorry LBD I couldn’t rotate the picture on my phone. No, the machine is Mounted on the wall

Thanks for checking out my project.

Phones transfer dierect to LJ may be a tad hard(er), however, this may give some ideas.... There’s gotta be an app somewhere!

Been tossing up on a CNC… No room in the workshop, however, I have a large “open” back area… but the mess (your picture confirms)??? All dust extraction is downstairs and contrary to pottzy... NASA has limited funds and I have neighbours that actually like me (dummies).

In one of the photos it has a look of an old fashion radio.
