I did have old, Russian clock enclosure, and I wanted piggy bank. That was very quick and very easy upcycling action. Maybe 15 minutes including design, cutting and assembling. Top and bottom of coin compartment made of 3mm plywood. Walls around – 3mm acrylic glass. Looks good, now to testing 😉
I’ve added clamps that hold cut/engraved material flat on the table. The birch plywood I buy is often bent. It’s also common problem with acrylic mirror, due to protecting layer on the back side. Now I can cut everything nicely and evenly.
