First crack at a treats box. Pine box with milk-painted poplar lid and maple bone lift. Bottom is lined with best Dollar Store shelf liner.

Lettering and dog paws are my first attempt at double-bevel scroll saw inlay using walnut.

Lucy likes it! Awesome that she thinks kibble is treats.

Nice job on the box and inlay. I have my first attempt at inlay on my calendar this year. Beautiful dog. I have always thought the Bernese Mountain dogs are one of the prettiest breeds.

Lucy is beautiful and her treat box looks super. Lot’s of nice details. I smiled at your last sentence as our pup Teddee also thinks her kibbie is the same as a treat (although she will take a treat if offered!).

Great job on the inlay. Lucy looks like she would really like a dog friendly way to get into them so she can help herself. I’ll bet in time at all she will be able to find the treat box wherever you put it.

I laughed about her thinking kibble is a treat. Our Springers think ice cubes are treats, even in the winter.

EaslS, ice cubes are a treat with a little Scotch splashed over and around them…...

Lucy is wondering if you could make it a “self serve” design next time? Just kidding….we have a Golden that has figured out how to activate the ice maker…I have to turn it off after I use it every time!!!

Awesome job and beautiful dog, thanks for showing!

I only saw the dog. We used to own a Bernese, and I still miss him.

All, thanks for the kind comments. Lucy just brightens up our life and makes us laugh every day.

Moke, you gave me a chuckle hearing about your Golden figuring out the ice maker. We just hope Lucy never works out how to use the toaster. She sits and stares at it often enough.

Nice job on the scroll saw work!! I thought they were laser engraved at first, too. Beautiful Bernese and as big as she is, you might need a bigger treat container :) I gotta keep ours far back on the counter for my counter surfer lab!

I’m looking at the walnut left over after cutting the inlay text and I’m thinking this could be filled with something like polymer clay to make another inlaid box (not that Lucy needs two…)

Any experience with different inlay materials, particularly those that don’t need baking or nasty odours?

This is so cool – the only thing that would make it better, is if you figure out a way to make if a sort of puzzle for the pooch! I’m sure they love the mental simulation that comes before getting at their treats!
