John,

How did you make the cylinder hollow bodies?

I'd be interested in that as well, those are pretty cool.
I started with absolutely nothing. Now, thanks to years of hard work, careful planning, and perseverance, I find I still have most of it left.

I make them just like a bucket.  There are 16 staves (?) with an angled cut at 11 dgs - the outside is 1".  I turn them on the lathe to make them round - don't bother with the inside of course.  I hand some others that want a video so I am going to try that.  I have a request for 2 more.  If the videos comes out I will post it.

very Cool 

How did you handle letting the kids eventually get their coins out?


Would you mind if we borrow that design concept?

I bore a hole in the bottom and used a cork.  I used a 1.5 inch cork.
