Money Hungry Giraffe Results

Rating:
Pros:
  • Very cute. Useful bank. Kids love it.
Cons:
  • Difficult requires special bits/rout
This was a fun project that really was beyond my skill level but all in all it turned out cute. I wan't aware I was going to need the router so actually had to purchase one and the bits I needed. Not sure if I overlooked that in the instructions before I bought it or what. Anyway it if FINALLY done. I didn't use the rabbeting bit for the bank plastic part to make it inset instead I cut it and screwed to the outside. If I make any more of them I will attempt to rabbet that part but not really sure how to do it safely. The Grandkids love it. It really is cute although for the beginner that I am I found it difficult.
