I made one of these goofy dog bone dishes last year as a novel business card holder at the shows. The very first person to walk up wanted to buy it. I told her it wasn’t meant for sale but make me an offer. I figured I’d make a few more a little bigger and see what happens. I make them in two parts. This way I can use the cutout as a small plaque with the dogs name on it.

I replenished some of these cutting boards from last year. Taken largely from dean and prospector they attract attention and are a good way to use up shorts.

Those dog bone dishes are great, and the finish looks really nice on them. Easy bet to say you’ll sell all of them quickly, people love that kind of stuff! Great looking boards too, unique looking.

These were on the cnc in two pieces. The trick is in the gluing. Trying to keep the squeeze out from going to the inside is the key. That’s hard to clean up. The outside cleans up easily. Then I use a pattern router bit in two passes. One up, one down, that will take out any misalignment from the glue up.
