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.
I continued to cut out dog silhouettes out of 1/4” walnut stock on the FSL Muse: an English Bulldog, Brittany Spaniel and Golden Retriever. Then I worked on the dog names, using Wishline font I found on dafont.com.
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.
