This was made as a gift to my wife for her birthday earlier this month.
Otis was a Miniature Pincher that my wife was introduced to as a very tiny puppy. He spent his entire life with her and became her closest friend. I am fairly sure that if she would have had to choose between myself or Otis, I would be packing my things! Luckily, everyone was a friend of Otis’ – even our three cats. He got along with everyone and made everyone he met a tiny bit happier for knowing him.
Sadly, Otis passed away a few years ago one bright summer day. He was 14 1/2 years old.
The cutting measures 10×12 inches and is solid Ambrosia Maple. Treatment is a soak in lemon oil and a backing of thick felt.
My wife would also like a shadow-box style frame made from a dark wood – once this is done I will post as Picture 4.
