I found some simple animal blocks on Pinterest, so I made a few ๐Ÿ™‚

This is an awesome project to use up your small scraps of wood! I used the band saw to cut little toes and noses. Drill bits for the eyes.

I created the ears by using my band saw and just cutting in angles that I thought looked good for the cats.

The dog’s ears since they are typically floppy were glued onto the side of its head using CA glue.

If these are recreative I would use the bent nail for a tail but if you plan on making these for children consider using the paracord and gluing in the tail, this will also let you add a splash of colour.

Success! You're on the list.
