Default getting back in the saddle

Well it's not much, but it's the first thing I've used a router on in a while. It is an eye glass holder, that will eventually be painted as a cat when the oldest daughter gets around to it. I've got to finish cutting out another one in a horse pattern for the little one.

The $20 question is will this solve the problem of them not being able to find their glasses in the morning......

Thanks for sharing.

Now you have to build one like a saddle to go with your header.

You mean if I had one of those I wouldn't have stepped on my glasses and broken the right ear piece?

Default And the horse is cut out

Finished a horse version for Daughter #2, it required a lot more shaping because her glasses are tiny. They will probably be unpainted until they have a rainy weekend.
