Well it looks like this project is done.
I completed the 3 dog leash holders today.
All three are almost identical, walnut, maple, and purple heart.
They measure 5" square and approximately 3/4" thick.
The hardware was purchased from Lee Valley and I made up the name inserts with Word on the Mac.
I'm off to list these on Etsy, not too sure what price point I'm looking for, maybe a quick poll will help me decide.
Thanks for following me on this project, I'll be asking some questions about it later today.
