I read somewhere that it isn’t good to make your dog eat off the floor, so I thought I’d make a little stand. Of course, I couldn’t just make something easy. I figured this would be a good project to try making some hand cut dovetails (a first for me). I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, and my dog seems to like it too!
I definitely need to get some more practice with dovetailing. I have some pretty large gaps between some of mine.
I don’t have a ton of tools, so I did this project exclusively with hand tools. I have a couple hand planes, and a nice dovetail saw (I have a table saw, but I didn’t end up using it). Overall, it was a lot of fun to build!
It’s finished with Waterlox.
