Another litter of pigs ready for market

Furnished content.

Another litter of pigs ready for marketThis my 4th generation of 'money pigs'. 3 in beech and 1 in cherry. the cylinder for the body is made using a birdsmouth router bit, I then add the hexagon ends and then turn to shape on the lathe. The legs are turned as well and set in holes drilled in the bottom. The eyes are set in recesses & secured with gelled superglue. Ears are made from leather, rolled and glues into holes. The tail is a piece of old phone cord with the wires removed and glued into a hole. The bung is 1 1/8 hole drilled with a forstner bit. The slot is 1/8 started with 2 adjacent drill holes on one end and 1 on the other. I then cut the slot with a sabre saw and cleaned up the slot with a file. Finished with a hand rubbed polyurethane and then waxed.
These have been a real hit for the grandkids, charity auctions and as gifts… and a lot of fun to make. I'd love to get suggestions for variations and improvements.
