I just finished restoring the mechanical bank that my grandfather made for me (MANY) years ago, when I was ten.
My aim was to make it look like a turn-of-the-century gent, but methinks he looks more than a little like Salvador Dali, no?
Swallow the coin and . . . voila!
Grandpa’s long gone, but I still cherish all the handcrafts he made for us.
