I made this piece because my high school mascot happened to be the “Dawgs”. In Texas we were the Dawgs and anywhere else it would be pronounced Dogs for those of you that have not had the pleasure to visit Texas LOL. I saw this picture on a google search and could not find the pattern, so I made it as best I could. I used a lot of risers to give it more depth, but that is hard to see from pictures. I just got my new saw and thought this would be a easy one that I could do to get used to it. After starting on the piece it was much more difficult than I thought and I spent a lot more time on it to get to look ok. It is 20 inches tall and 18 inches wide and finished with semi-gloss wipe on varnish. Hope it yall like it and any comments are always welcome.

This piece was made from cherry, figured maple, wenge, aspen, walnut, ebony, and mahogany. No stains were used to achieve colors.

Beautiful Dawg, but I’m a Gator fan! That doesn’t mean I can’t admire excellent work and this is! In fact I think all your works are superb.

Great work, those rolls of skin look very realistic. I had to do a double take.

Thanks to all of you for your kind comments. Micky and Bob, I saw the pattern on a google search, but couldn’t find the pattern for sale. I made the pattern in inkscape and tried to come as close as I could to match. I believe in sharing so if you interested I can send it to you if you send me a private message. As for Michael, we all think your work is “very pretty” too lol and I really like your heart at the end of your message<3><3!
