Default Piggy Banks

Hello fellow scrollers. I just joined and think this is a great site. Does anyone out there know where I can get scroll saw patterns for piggy banks. A few years ago, I made piggy banks for a lot of kids. Now my daughter wants me to make banks for my grandkids. I do not remember where I got them from. My youngest granddaughter wants an elephant bank. There was a catalog that had many different piggy bank patterns. It also had all parts that one could order. Including a musical slot when you dropped a coin into the bank. HELP! Thanks

G'day Halflife,
Woodworking Products Matching bank at Cherry Tree
Has lots of money box patterns. I haven't used any of theirs however I have made many money boxes.
I just found pics of vehicles and animals, sized them correctly and scrolled them out. I'd then cut out the centre and screw a piece of perspex on both sides of the cut out. I'm not sure of the size of your largest coin, ours is a 50c bit which is 32mm so I used timber 35mm thick this allowed the slot to be cut across the top.

Yes, I was about to suggest Meisels as they not only have many patterns but the rubber plugs to accomadote the bottoms.

I missed this post Halflife!! I have a book called "Wooden Banks You Can Make" by Harvey Helms. I have made several banks from it. And he has 2 different elephants. The book is available from our lovely hosts of this board, Fox Chapel Publishing!! I have been working on sheep banks lately. I really hated wasting the middles that I cut out, so I shrunk the pattern enough that I can use the middles for some smaller ones. Here a couple pictures of them:



You even make your own wooden plugs for them!! Hope this helps!!
