Hi everyone LJ’s,

This week I bring you a way different project. This project was made entirely by my wife, who hasn’t previous skills on woodworking. She only needed some safety advices.

All started few weeks ago when I cheered my wife to make something in my workshop. Then, she came with the idea to craft a toy cat as a present for a volunteer from Animal Welfare Association who looked after a couple which we adopted.

She decided to use leftover materials as a symbolic metaphor of the process of adopting an abandoned animal.

We hope you liked this project, as my previous ones. If you have any question we’ll try to solve to you.

Regards from Barcelona.

Dear Mrs ww bcn

I like your cat and its nice to see you had a great purrpuss in making the project.

Also Mr ww bcn

(assuming the tools are yours) a question/request if I may, I would like to see a few shots of your drill press, in particular the hold down clamp setup, it looks very similar to a morticing machine configuration.

-- Regards Robert

Great use of your imagination. I will have my granddaughters make these for Christmas presents. At least assemble them!

Hola. ¿Tu diseño está basado en el trabajo de Flavio Siganda, “Animaderos”? Sería bueno que lo comentes. La versión es muy original de todas maneras, sobre todo por los bigotes. Saludos desde Argentina.

Hola! No tengo ni idea de quién es Flavio Siganda. El diseño salió sobre la marcha según íbamos eligiendo los materiales de mi taller. Un saludo!
