I built this feeder for a large Lab that lost his front leg after being hit by a car. I know the design is a little hokey, but my wife loves it and it was fun to build.

Great design! Looks really nice. What type of finish did you use? I would like to build something like this, but also know my dog is messy when she gets a drink.

Thanks. This was for a gift to a friend. I used wipe on poly at first but I was worried about the laminations coming apart, so I sprayed it with spar urethane. I like the color it added.

I’ve built a dozen or so of these for charity and friends and our Lab of course. Cool design on your as well. I put a paw print on it and a cross beam takes some extra time but people seem to like it. I used outdoor spar varnish on it to repeal the water from miss messy. LOL Great work. Dog Dish
