In this instructable I will show you how I made a money box for donation. I designed it for an important registered association in my hometown. They take care for the animals and the enviroment in our wonderful Kurpark (spa gardens). Just visit their homepage:
Step 1: Materials & Tools
- ply wood
- wood glue
- acrylic glass
- postbox lock
- laser cutter
- pc with inkscape
- some clamps
Step 2: Designing and Laser Cutting
First I made some scribbles to find the right design. After that I took my camera, made a picture, send it to my pc and started editing the laser data in inkscape.
I took a few moments to find the correct dimensions and position of the lock because I always had to switch between 2D and 3D-construction.
Step 3: Gluing
This step is all about gluing. Just make sure you put every single piece flush with it's following part. To fix the glued pieces I used a lot of clamps as you can see in the picture.
Step 4: Finisched!
Here are some closeups.
I also made two keyring pendants because the small keys have the characteristic to dissapear.
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed my instructable!
