    A Mirror and a Bank

    I was told this is "rustic maple" but it looks like ambrosia maple to me?? I made these as some prototypes for some awards I will be making this winter and I got the go ahead to make quite a few more. 75 banks and 36 mirrors!!

    I need to get a new champhor router bit for the banks (lots of burning) but other than that I already have a good idea on how to mass produce these. The regular nails on the bank will be replaced by horse shoe nails and cross line in H brand is the coin slot. The brand was provided by the client. I will be using a woodburner to put some award verbage on each as well.

    Looks like you are going to be in production mode...
    The brand adds a nice touch, as will the horse shoe nails.
    Nice work Jeff.
