Dog Bowl Holders

Things I learned (or was reminded of) during this build. 1. I am terrified of routers. The bit came off during the cut, and 2 words: cord management. 2. Don’t try to cut a perfect circle with a jig saw unless you have steady hands (which I don’t). 3. Adult ADHD. The shop looked like it exploded and I couldn’t find a certain drill bit. 4. Nothing offers me the same high, the same flow, the same unawareness of time passing as woodworking, and while I can’t make perfect things or perfectly square things or fancy joints yet, I do love the shit out of it. Cost: free.
