I finished two more orders for custom dog leash holders. They are boxed and ready to be shipped.

I also worked on rounded storage boxes for the April Angels. Rather than using plywood, I tried the thin walnut stock. I didn’t have much luck with the flex hinges in the corners. The walnut was just too brittle.

However, I like experimenting with different mediums and decided to try acrylic. Here is the result.

In preparation for our trip to Hawaii next week, I created these custom stoppers out of scraps of thin stock walnut I had left over. After ashes of Jill and Koda are placed inside April Angels, these stoppers will be glued over the bottom hole to keep the ashes inside.

I also needed to start working on Mary Kilway’s order for custom dog leash holders. Before too long Christmas will be here, I need to get them finished with plenty of time to be shipped to their appropriate parties.

I also did some experimenting with different materials other than wood, such as acrylic and card stock, for the dog shape.

However, there remained a strong preference for wood.
