This is a collaborative project with my wife. I cut scraps of plywood into animal shapes and she added chalkboard paint and the decorative elements. The idea is you can write notes in the chalkboard area and hang or display them in various settings. My wife is a semi-professional artist and displays work at various art fairs. You get a lot of traffic at the shows but very few people are looking to spend big bucks on original artwork. We thought this might be a nice alternative to the usual low price point items (e.g. postcards, prints, etc.).

I’m hoping we sell a few so I can buy a spindle sander. Either that or I’ll need to improve my technique on the bandsaw. The edges were pretty rough and I spent way too much time finishing them.
