My husband who is a retired Veteran who has also lost the last 3 weeks work due to arthritis has decided to start woodworking and will be buying his supplies and starting his woodworking shop here in the next couple weeks.

What I'd like from folks is ideas.
What's out there you can't find or can only find that is to spendy?

For instance, raised water and food dishes?
I have seen them to be quite spendy.
He can make them and a profit for half the price.
Added bonus since they will be custom made, he can make it specifically for your dogs as he won't be the big commercial type where they make hundreds of just 18, 20 and 22 inches high.
The finish can match your decor.
We will offer toll painting on them and / names painted on them.
Please, this is a new endeavor and we can use all the ideas you have.
One idea we have is wooden doggy toy chests, for the dogs toys that would have the dogs name on it.
He wants to make quality things for critter folks at affordable prices just so he can have fun and make a modest living.
Thank you for any ideas.
CJ

Everything will be custom made, all you have to do is tell us how high, wide and tall you want it. Also what type of finish.
Won't be a problem putting a lock on it.When we get this going, in about 3 to 5 weeks, we'll also get a web site going.

How about a leash holder (like a coat/peg holder but smaller pegs) that could be painted with paw prints/dog names?

I love the leash idea with the names and the toy box. They would also make great Christmas gifts. Also if he really gets up and going- My company has a craft fair every year and maybe you could send some pics and I could display those at the fair. I usually sell my home made dog biscuits every year. Just let me know, I would love to be able to help you.

I would definately buy a toy box and maybe a food box and a raised feeder.  Let me know when you get the site up and running.
Thanks,
