Continuing to avoid handcutting the dovetails in the 8/4
work bench apron by making another kid project. This one's
a basset hound out of an old redwood fence board. Other than
the bandsawing the parts, kids can do the rest - sanding,
drilling, tapping in dowels, applying the bug spit finish
(that's shellac to adults) cutting out and glueing the
felt ears and best of all for kids, hunting through a
hobby shop to find wooden wheels and axles.
