Maker of the Month

Ebony, the shop dog

Ebony's main project at the shop is to "make" everyone feel welcome. She does a great job whether you walk into the shop, or are just passing by. She is always there with a tail wag (although hoping for a belly rub in return). Ebony first came on a Woodshop Sunday with her person, Matt, and has been here for most all the Sundays since. She assists in cleaning up sawdust by rolling around in it. At home her passions are chasing squirrels and eating food. Thanks for your help Ebony!
