Default Money sign clock/bank

Hi, I am new to this site and was wondering if anyone could help me find a bank/clock in the shape of a money sign or has a money sign within it. My 12 year old son wants to make one for shop this semester and I can't seem to find one. Thanks.

I just did a google search for "dollar sign/scroll saw" and all I got was cross eyed. LOL Maybe some one else can direct you to a Scroll saw pattern site that has one. Just an idea , but how about if you find a pattern , enlarge it to whatever size the bank will be, then... stack cut a bunch of them..enough to get the thickness of the bank. Then cut out the centers of most of the stack, saving maybe two thickness each for the front and back of the back. then restack all of them with the hollow ones inside, and glue the stack together. LOL Theres probably an easier way, but thanks for making me flex my brain... Larry

Here is the money sign. As Larry said you can always hollow the center out or make your center a differant shape and attach the sign. Hope this helps. Steve

Here's the idea. I'll let you or your son draw it. I'd suggest using 1/8" plexiglass to create a 'box' that the money would fall into. The $, Yen and Pound sign would be scroll in wood and mounted in both front and back. Does that make sense?

On second thought, I would scroll one set of signs using 1/2" wood and mount them in the center. Then the coins would slowly engulf the symbols as you save.

I would suggest using Steve's cash sign cut it like fretwork and build a box around it with a slot in the top and a removeable base make sense.If you make it 5 by 7
you can put a 2" clock insert to the right or left of the cash sign

Thanks for all the ideas. We will work on the design and let you all know what we come up with. He keeps saying he wants the money to go down the two strokes of the money sign and fall in the bank. He sure has great ideas but then I have to figure out how to do them!!!!! Will keep you posted as to what we come up with.
