Hi everyone and happy February! I am so excited to share my latest project with you. I have always had an interest in woodworking, but never really pursued it. After receiving a jigsaw as a gift this past Christmas, I was extremely motivated to finally put this interest into action. While a fairly basic first project, I learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of constructing this art piece. The process was smooth. I started by trimming 4 boards down to size and connecting them via 2 vertical braces along the backside. I then used the jigsaw to cut out the silhouette of my dog, Ace. I finished off the piece by sanding down the rough edges, using hammers and chains to distress the wood, and adding a rich walnut stain in varying shades to really bring out the wood’s character. I enjoyed this project so much, I’ve already got a list in my head of woodworking projects I want to tackle in the future! Thanks for reading!
This is so impressive! You did awesome!
Thanks so much Kelsie! Appreciate your comment!
Wow…. congrats :))
This looks great. I did one of my Chihuahua Lily, it sits in my workshop.
Dog loving woodworkers are the best
Thanks so much! Always happy to meet fellow dog lovers!
I really like this, and I see that many people would be willing to buy similar ones, breed-specific if possible. You now have a new job! 🙂
Thanks Patrick! That would be a fun job 🙂
Awesome project. It looks great!
