So I finally finished the second dog feed stand that I made for my mother who is donating it to a auction with the proceeds to benefit a Mastiff Rescue organization.

This is the second of two feed stands, the first was made of a different mix of woods whereas this one is made from plainsawn red oak. So it stands roughly 17 inches tall, 23 inches wide and 13 inches deep. The bowls are 3qt stainless steel.

For the top I used four pieces of 7/8” thick Oak edge jointed and used a shop made circle template to allow for the bowls. The sides have a classical edge profile.

The skirts are two pieces of oak glued together with a edge bead profile on the bottom of the skirt. To fancy it up I used an appliqué made from birch on the front.

The legs are 8/4 oak that I ran a beading bid down the center of. I used pocket hole joinery to assemble the structure.

The finish is a Minwax Red Oak (more about that in my blog), grain filled with Crystalac and top coated with quick drying Poly.

Overall it ended up coming out pretty good I think. Better than the first one. Just wish I had the time to let it sit and get the top to a piano style flatness. But Its off to the auction this week.
