  • Boxer Leash Holder

    Finally got a little time to spend with the saw. This is cut from a piece of Honduras Mahogany that is 7/8" x 7 1/2" x 8". Cut with a #1 spiral (flat end FD). My wife wanted a leash holder for our 1 yr old boxer. It is backed with black construction paper.

          What a smashing project ! As Daryl says, you've really captured so much personality into that portrait.

              Well done, it look real nice. I just don't know how you do that with a spiral blade, I can't seem to control them.

              Good job.

                    Nice idea and expertly done. Now you need 3 more boxers to fill up the hooks.

                        The only thing is is sits too still to be OUR Boxer. I have been thinking about adding springs on it, (too much like a bobblehead?). The other hooks are for our 2 Newfys leashes.

                        Finish is 1 coat Duraseal neutral and 3 coats of Deft.

                            I clean it up and stuff regularly. If I do a lot of typing, spreadsheets, etc., I use the computer as it’s faster for me but take the tablet to shows and markets to post from there. I also use my rapid resizer program on the tablet when I want to change a pattern and am downstairs. I really need a...

                            Rolf, if your Picassa file works I want it!!! They cram so much into newer programs that it just complicates things and takes away intuitive stuff. Thank you for checking!

                            Linda,
                            Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...
