Bandit’s Dog Bowl Display – Daniel D. Brown, 2018

Our aging pup Bandit has collapsing esophagus (due to the weakening of the cartilage rings in his throat due to old age). This makes it more difficult for him to drink when tilting his head to the ground. So I built this stand with a couple of random pieces of walnut and cherry I had lying around (which I milled myself from neighborhood trees). These were also the first hand-cut dovetails I’ve ever attempted. They could be better, but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.


Mail Organizer – Daniel D. Brown, 2018

The mail organizer requested by my wife is finished and in use! It now hangs next to our entrance above the butcher block island cart I built a year ago. Goodbye mail clutter! Made from walnut, cherry, and ash. Box joints cut on table saw jig. Contours and fretwork cut on a bench top bandsaw and scrollsaw. Designed in Illustrator.
