Animal Banks

Helllllooooooo! I haven’t posted here in forever, but I dropped by to help a friend find some troubleshooting tips, so I thought it would be fun to post one of our latest projects. Do I have to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Glowforge? Maybe not, but I just did, so… :joy:

We have been making versions and variations of different baby animal designs and recently I thought, “Those would be cute as banks!” So I made a total of 7 of them so far and they’ve been a ton of fun! Of course all kinds of friends and family members want one, so I am making a LOT of them, but no worries! It’s fun! (Almost all the time!)

You can see a 15 sec assembly video here for the Penguin bank:

Hi! Good to see you…if even just for a few moments.

The photos on the post has been flagged ? Really ? I don’t understand what’s the problem on this?

I’m not seeing it as flagged now, but I can easily guess why it might have happened. Blatant advertising is frowned upon. The forum is for showing what you can do with a Glowforge in order to inspire others. It’s fine to put a link to your Etsy shop in your profile, or even at the bottom of a post, but lately it’s gotten so a lot of people seem to just come here to sell stuff, without sticking around to contribute to the community, and that’s not what the forum is about.

Knowing @BigBlueMark I absolutely understand a need to post pictures with prominent branding on them. Display photos are already made and no need to do them again. Plus given the common practice of using someone else’s photos to market a product you are pushing, I think it is understandable.

Besides. No one is going to need to ask for files because it’s clear they are available.

Is anyone else wondering why only one (the gray monkey in the first picture) has a name?

The banks are adorable but honestly the bank would go unused.

I can not even remember the last time I used real money and got change back.
