Dog Food Scoops

Case-Scoop.jpg Case-ScoopDog.jpg
At my house we break a lot of dog food scoops with 14 feedings a day, so this "unbreakable" scoop is made from 3 pieces of red oak scrap and 8 pieces of hard maple scrap, all cut into circles prior to laminating. To keep the pieces concentric while gluing, I drilled a 1/2" hole in the center of each (the maple was already "breadboard" laminated) and placed a 1/2" dowel through the stack while gluing. The scoop is drilled with a Forstner bit. It is finished with 3 coats of tung oil.

Book Display

Case-CodeBook.jpg Case-CodeGun.jpg
This is a scroll saw project, made from an old Penal Code Book. Edges of the pages are glued with 2 coats of Titebond, then the pattern is cut out on the scroll saw. Another coat of Titebond to the new edges, then the whole back of the book is glued together and the interior red flocked with a mini-gun applicator. Use is rather self-explanatory.
