My daughter adopted a cute little puppy some time back. I don’t know what they put in the water over there in Boone North Carolina but it started growing and has not slowed down yet. She swears its a dog but I am having doubts…. Anyhow, she asked me if I would build it an elevated bowl stand so it wouldn’t have to lay down to eat. All the input she gave me, it needed to be between 15 to 17 inches tall. Found a couple of stainless steel dog bowls and used them as the basis of the project. It’s built out of oak scraps that I had left over from the farm table build…well except the legs which were runners out of a oak pallet. The top is supposedly a bone shape….don’t think I quite got that part. It’s finished with Danish Oil and when its cures, will get a coat of clear polyurethane to make it a tad bit more durable. The bowl cutouts have a strip of weather striping attached to muffle “bowl rattle”.
