Showcase cover image for Dog stuff holder  (excuse to use the "new" bandsaw)

Project Information

Bandsaw purchased last spring but havent had opportunity to use it much. This is a silly project I finished last week. Holder for "dog stuff" by the garage door. Used the wood I played with on the bandsaw (walnut strip in poplar) for the front and then tried large finger joints on the bandsaw with questionable outcome. Added few screws so seems solid enough. Decided to add some interest to the back board so I cut some more rolling waves at the band saw. Used keyhole slots; so it is now home securely on the garage wall by our door. No more looking for dog combs and brushes. Teddee did not seem impressed

Cool idea. Any excuse is a good excuse to use the shop tools.

Thank you for the nice comments.

And Andre, I have made some raised dog dish holders for outside, inside, and in our RV - dogs get my best!!

Oh, and a custom dog bed


Our new pup has unfortunately decided the outside holder is good for teething…

At first I thought the "dog stuff" was their toys and I was impressed you had them so well trained 8^)

Handy place to keep it all from getting lost or at least their least favorites from getting chewed up!

Looks like the walnut fits nicely. Bandsaw skills can really expand your woodworking world, great start! Did you use a fence on the box joints?

Splintergroup - didn't use a fence…thus the need to add a screw from the bottom to secure the joints. Did some "fill" with scrap and then sanded so at a glance looks ok. Need to do some more reading to see how to improve my setup.

GR8HUNTER - bought the Rikon 14" 10-326 when Menards had their 11% "sale" and did the ship to store option. Never used a bandsaw before so the learning curve is on a steep incline yet! So far really just playing around. Did some resaw and used the book match for a box top.

My dogs are "woodworkers" too. They make "crafts" from cutoff scraps they snag off the floor and sneak back into the house.

Love it! Haven't had the new puppy in the shop…my 3 year old is pretty good but imagine 15-wk old Dollee would be like a wrecking crew!
