I use to make these little banks. Trying to engineer the things was fun. I would make them out of several kinds of woods and use a wood dye to color some of them.

Yes, many of them found a home with children and friends. Here are a few pics of the building process.

Often at 'craft fairs' folks have no idea how much work goes into these wunnerful piglets, but they sure can see the love. Thanks for sharing the WIP steps.

Lucky kids to have received these.
