I had a request for an elevated dog bowl so I made a couple from scrap mahogany and maple, And of course I got more requests so I made a couple from a 5/4 live edge oak slab.

Nice work, the dogbone cut out sets it off.

Extraordinarily tall dogs? They look very nice, I just can’t figure how they are used. The size of the bowls tells me they are NOT for sitting tiny dogs on top of it so they can eat and drink.

Got it, with nothing standing at one I was thinking they looked to be 4’ tall. I figured based on bowl size they were for big dawgs.

Great looking stands! Couple questions…how did you make the cutout in the legs (a very nice detail) and what finish did you use. Thanks for sharing.

Dog bones are easy LOL I drilled the holes on the drill press with a forstner bit then cut the straight part with a jigsaw to connect them.. Then I ran a router with a 45° chamfer bit around the inside of the cutout, The first ones I made I used a hole saw in a drill and a jigsaw… The finish is 2 coats of clear wipe on polyeurathane, Sand and one coat of clear polyeurathane brushed on.
