This is my first ever woodworking project! I always wanted to learn and just getting started to get tools and practicing.

I have 2 medium size dogs and one is always sick. I read somewhere that raising their food could help, so far so good.

That is really pretty. I love the mosaic tile. You have some lucky dogs.

Welcome to LJ’s. Nobody here is overly critical. However everyone here is generally very willing to help. None of us ever stop learning. Nice project.

Nice work! The tile looks nice, and it won’t show the slobber marks as much!

Very nice job! I’m sure it will help your dogs, I know it helps my Lab.

But just as a suggestion, I wouldn’t have the water dish in front of an electrical outlet like that.

Great project. I just made one of these for my lab and posted it on here. She has loved it! I really like the idea of the tile on top though! Is that backsplash or ceramic? Nice job!

BrandonR – Thanks for the comment! I used a backsplash for the top.
