Soft maple, acrylic
I wanted to figure out the easiest way to carve a piggy bank in Easel. The trickiest part was figuring out how to get the coins out of the bank without figuring out a cork method or gluing two pieces together.
The design allows for an easy removal of the acrylic sheet using the gap at the top of the wood. Since the acrylic is press-fit into the wood like an inlay, it stays in place even as the coins fill the bank.
