  • Doggies - for Gill

    Gill, I promised one of my next projects would be doggies instead of kitties - so here it is: 'Peeping Pups' plaque with a hook to hang the canines' leashes and harnesses
    3 mm MDF on 16 mm MDF backing, painted
    and yes... I am still on the painted MDF 'kick'

      I hope it isn't only for Gill!

      I love it. They look full of mischief and seem to say "Won't you take us out for a walk?"

      It's the type of reaction I get from my two German Shepperd if I happen to even brush their leash accidentally while walking by. A sort of time stopping expectation feeling.

      Thanks for sharing,

        Thanks Steve, yes it is...

        Marcel, I had a tough time taking the photo earlier, my two Jackies saw me taking the leash and harness and would not leave me alone for a minute...yapping, begging to go walk and jumping up to grab it off the hook. In the end I had close them in so I could get the photo done!

          Ohhh.... it's lovely !

          I recognise that keen look of expectation only too well; it was usually accompanied by lots of jumping up and down, spinning around while I tried to harness them. It was like trying to harness the wind !

          How on earth did you get the pups to pose like that while you drew them ?

            I love it. That is really a neat idea. You can't copyright ideas, can you?

              Really nice, Sue. I like the dog lead hanger idea.

              I've seen that somewhere before - Yesterday I just added that to my list of patterns to order next from Wooden Teddy Bear - hadn't realises it was yours .. thought I guess that's what the SM on the code is

              Is the pattern for the cat breaking out of a box that you posted a couple of weeks ago available for sale?

                Ian, all my patterns are handled by WTB, you can email and ask them for the title 'Peeping Kitty'.

                Gill, it took many "beenos" and other titbits, but I managed in the end (wink)

                  I thought my dogs were the only ones that went crazy whenever I pulled their harnesses out of the drawer! I practically have to shut one in a different room so I can put the harness on the other one they get so excited. That is a cute pattern, I'll have to make something like that for my dogs.

                        When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.

                        Blade slippage is a function of the blade clamp holder and or the set screw and thumb screw with swivel.

                        Tricia what saw do you have? Does the blade slip or it just won’t tighten?

                        Have you tried to rough up the thumb screws tips? How old are the blade clamps? may be time to replaced them.
