A good friend of mine had an idea to make a dish holder for his two Labs. He wanted it shaped like a bone. I told him, No Worries it would be easy and too draw something up. Too my surprise, he showed up with a cardboard template of the bone and legs with a Paw print in it to scale. So we got to work. Cut out the holes with jigsaw then used my Osculating sander. We used the band saw to cut out the bone. We used a 1/2 round over bit on all the edges including the cross member.
He wanted it made out of Maple, I suggested we put a strip of Black Walnut in it to break it up he liked the idea.
It is 90% done, but I had to take pics as he will finish sanding the Pocket Hole plugs and applying the rest of the Tung oil at home. I LOVED this so much I have to make one for my lab. Only a 2 Dish hole one though. We put in the Black Walnut cross member just for looks as it is solid as a rock.
What a great time, a cool little project!
Thx for looking.
