Finally finished the Greene and Greene inspired dog tray :)

Woods used:
Cherry for the table
Hard Maple for the plugs and cloud lifts instead of the traditional Ebony.

I also purchased a rubber kitchen drawer liner and used it for pads on the bottom of the legs as well as around the bowls to keep them from sliding around when Ninja is eating. Glued with CA.

Finish used:
3 coats of wipe on Arm-R-Seal Poly Top coat satin for the base
A thick 4 coat piano finish using a foam brush of Semi Gloss Arm-R-Seal for the top.
Wiped between coats with #00 and #0000.

This was a great learning project for me.
First time for breadboard ends, cloud lifts, and cutting circles with the router. I really enjoyed this project and my dog, Ninja, REALLY enjoys it.

My blog for it:

Thanks for looking.

I just want to know if your dog has any idea what a fine piece of woodworking he’s eating out of.

Thank you guys. Too bad this didn’t make it to the top 3 though :( I think I posted it on a poor choice of days. Oh well, I’m proud of it.

Thanks dwjenkins, I really enjoyed this project and it looks even better now that the cherry has darkened. I wish I had better lighting, these pictures makes it look too yellow, which it isn’t at all. The only advice I can give is make sure to account for the holes you are going to cut for the bowls when you decide how you’re going to attach the top to the base lol. That was a pain.
