The Wood Thief – Maggie
This past weekend, I realized I was being robbed by the wood thief. I began several new projects for clients and friends. One piece in particular, has a significant amount of very small pieces of wood. Each piece is cut out, sanded, and put together like a jig saw puzzle. I turned around to do some sanding and when I came back to my work bench, I notice one of my pieces that I had just completed was missing. After looking under my workbench and around the area, I determined that I must have done something with it and redid the piece. I came back a few moments later and another piece was missing.

Does the dog eat the parts or just hide ‘em from you. What a trickster. She a beautiful dog though – that’s for sure.

I also have an English Mastiff and he drools like you wouldnt believe. I have often wondered if there could be some sort of industrial purpose for this! Wood finish could be an option! LOL! Thanks for reading!

I fitted a door for someone a couple of years ago, turned around and couldn’t find a 3/4 chisel I’d put down on the chisel roll. Obviously baffled by the disappearing chisel, I left thinking I must have put it in a toolbox or in the back of the van. Got a call a few days later from the woman of the house, her golden labrador had taken it for use as a chew toy. I’m only glad it was just chewing the handle. Just goes to show that anything’s fair game for a dog.

Cute. Pour some hot sauce on an end piece conveniently sticking out…problem cured.

Too funny! I love the wanted poster.
I think I’ve got one of those in training. No way does she come into the shop yet. My toes are her favorite so far.

I made a rolling pin for a Christmas present for my daughter. She oiled it after using it. She was gone for 5 minutes and her dog decided to use it as a chew toy.
