Let this ferocious puppy dog guard your desk candy or whatever other valuables you have. Throw your spare change, keys or jewelry and he will sit faithfully guarding them until you need them again.
The dog stands 7" tall and the bowl is 5" in diameter. The bowl is cut with the scroll saw table at an angle so the bowl expands open. I used 1/2" wood for the bowl and set the table to 3 degrees. This caused the bowl to open 1 1/4". Practice on scrap wood to get the angle right before you commit to the final setting.
The body of the dog is 3/4" thick and the legs and ears are 1/2" thick. You can do as much or as little contouring as you like. I simply contoured the ears and left the legs and body square. Use contrasting wood for the eyes and nose.
You could skip the bowl cutting and just use a candy dish or dog bowl if you like.
