This is a fairly simple project that I did for a friend who was changing jobs. They wanted something with a bull in it. I think they were thinking a bull shaped box. Well I knew my skills weren’t that good so this is what I came up with. I built the box and door frame out of red oak. The door panel is birch plywood. The bull’s head is 1/4” oak plywood with a nice edge treatment. And the horns are thin maple. It gives it a bit of a 3D effect. For the eye, I carefully routed the outline and painted it black.
