This was a simple project but it used a really cool piece of wood so I thought I’d share. This raised dog bowl holder uses a beam that I salvaged from a building originally built in 1880. The growth rings on the pine beam are extremely tight. I cut it down to the size I needed so I’m thinking this part of the tree hasn’t seen daylight in about 250 years. I used a drill press and forstner bit to drill out the area for the bowls then a chisel to clean it up. I had to flatten the bottom and did that with a hand plane. Some high friction feet screwed to the bottom and I’m calling it done. No finish.
Thanks for looking.
