Texas Star Piggy Bank

A friend of mine just finished building a Texas Star Piggy Bank, for his son. The project was built using #8 Mirror Stainless Steel material. Material should be available from your local supplier or you can order online at http://www.onlinemetals.com/. After cutting out the (2) Star shapes, he cut (5) pieces in a rectangle shape, then formed across the middle in the direction he wanted. This makes the pieces that create the depth of the piggy bank. After all cutting and forming was done he tig welded all edges for a seamless look. After all welding then came the grinding to blend welds and then polishing to match the #8 stainless material. Above is a picture of final product. If you would like the detailed plans please email me texramsey@gmail.com
