The first two pictures show a raised food / water tray that is used to contain the food in the box below. One of my neighbors removed an old painted fireplace mantle made of spruce. I sanded it then planed the wood to bring back the beauty. Wanting to use it for storage, I used Plexiglas and sealed it with silicone so nothing could leach in or out. It can hold a 20lb bag of dry dog food.
The second set of pics show an adjustable (only slightly) tray. Made of Red Cedar, we use this one at our cabin. Both are coated with polyurethane.
-- I've never seen a tree that I wouldn't like to repurpose into a project. I love the smell of wood in the morning - it smells like victory.
