Made for the heck of it.

Shop salvage material Even the acrylic was just lying around; too scuffed to be used as a shinny material again; light sanding gives it a nice soft effect!

Cedar wolves, other woods are unknown—I think poplar for the upright, not sure.

Hit very lightly with torch to add depth.

My modified from a open stock silhouette wolf pattern.

About 6-1/2 inches tall.

Those look great, are they for a gift or just for all the shop books?

Great job! Reminded me to blow the dust off of my volume of Jack London’s Call of the Wild ¬†for yet another read.

Turned out nice. I think the wolfs want more books to read.

Very nice, but I wonder if I would have used a torch to bring out the grain in the wolves. On the ground they’re standing on it’s OK, but on the wolves themselves it has a zebra-like effect.

Or maybe you were going for the Thylacine look?

Nice job on the howling wolf bookends. We mainly have coyotes around here and they can really get to yipping some nights. There are a few wolves in the area.
