Donations

To start things off, we get to combine two of my favorite things: Woodworking and Greyhounds. The group that we adopted our three greyhounds: Elliott, Major, and Coralie from, Greyhound Angels Adoption,  is having their first annual 5k run/walk as well as their annual adopters picnic this weekend. We always try to send them a few donations, particularly since we moved out of state. I had a bunch of maple lying around, so I decided to make a variety of things to send this time:

I ended up making a few basic “Magic” wine bottle holders, two bone shaped coat/leash holders, a wine bottle caddy (more on that later), and two greyhound head shaped wine bottle holders.

The greyhound heads were a lot of fun, and I think they make a pretty unique decoration. Both are made out of maple, one I left natural, or “fawn” and the other I stained dark or “brindle” colored. Here they are in a bit more detail:
