We like traditional.

My wife selects furniture that is carved and since this stand would be in the living room surrounded by other furniture with curved legs and carvings, I offered to try and make a dog bowl stand for our Dogue De Bordeaux (French Mastiff, basically Hooch from “Turner and Hooch”). I thought it would be easier for the dog to eat and drink with the bowls raised.

I designed the stand so that I could raise it later. When the dog was a puppy the stand didn’t have legs, then I added legs when she got taller. You can see the first puppy bowl stand in the second to last picture. The puppy is in the last.

The legs were the most difficult – lots of wood to take off (without having proper tools).

The rest of the furniture has wood pieces that are kind of in the same style.

Thank you all,

I will definitely get back to carving when I have more space to do so. A proper shop.

Wow! Amazing and detailed work, beautiful. I make raised bowls for all of our dogs, too – but none are of this quality! I’m sure as she grows it will be covered with all that Dogue Drool! ;)

Oh yes, the stand has to be regularly cleaned. She has already grown to her full size – around 120lb.

You do put beef stakes in that bowl, don’t you? Anything less will not do! ))

She is no longer with us, but yes, the food got expensive. We raised her on raw meat diet.

I should have said she had grown.

WOW, that is an impressive carving! My dogs get a bowl on the floor. But then they are little mutts, about 6 pounds each.
