Jersey is my 6 month old chocolate lab who has grown big enough for an elevated bowl. Her older “sister” has a similar food and water stand made out of pine, but cherry matches some of my other work in the kitchen. The cherry for this project is left over stock from my kitchen table project. It is simply three pieces of wood joined at the corners with hand cut dovetails. The finish is Danish oil and 5 coats of wipe-on poly. I cut out the hole on the top with a scroll saw before cutting the dovetails and probably should have done that in the other order since it seemed like the top was delicate while I was cutting the dovetails. Nothing too exciting in this project, just the beaty of the wood and the dovetails, but Jersey sure is thrilled ever time she gets to use it.
