I built this 5 years ago to remember my springer spaniel Hobbes. Yesterday I decided it was time to do a little sanding and re-oil it. I milled the wood from a tree that I harvested on my neighbors lot.

This was my first try at carving and being a memorial bench I thought it fitting to include the ‘Dog Star’. Thinking about highlighting the carving with a dark stain.

Construction is mortise and tenon with locking dowels.
