Pack of dogs

A series of multifunction pieces based roughly on the shape of a dog, in different sizes and positions. These characters, named after famous Mexican wrestlers (/Dos caras Jr, Aguayo, Superastro, El Santo, Alushe /and/ Místico/) may work as a side table, stool, bench, bookshelf, magazine rack, newspaper holder, bookends, etc. By the way each piece is used, and the objects that interact with it, a different story is told. The pieces are made in different materials and processes. The pieces were manufactured by way of traditional woodworking techniques using scraps of solid wood such as tzalam, ash, red oak, poplar, alder, walnut, and pine. Through the combination and size of the pieces used each piece is given a unique character.
