We are dog people. As our introduction states, we have four furry babies. We’ve adopted from the local humane society, a local rescue, and we even rescued one of our pups from the parking lot of a local grocery store. Needless to say, we do not go out looking for designer breeds. (Ironically, however, it appears that the dog we most recently adopted is a Vizsla, but that is a whole nother ball of wax). Randy often refers lovingly to our mixed breed dogs as mutts. We, therefore, call our latest design the mutt feeding station. The top is made from black walnut, while the legs are pieces of poplar siding from an old barn, and the supports are ambrosia maple.
I absolutely love this piece. We never stain black walnut, so I decided to just use Randy’s oil mixture on all of the wood. Even though they are very different types of wood, they work really well together. It is sturdy, beautiful, and truly one of a kind. While we have decided that we will begin to make several pet related products, every single one will be unique and distinct–just like the dogs for whom we are making them.
