With all of our dogs, I have made platforms for their food and water dishes. I had read that it makes it easier for them to eat and drink (which makes sense to me). So, I decided to make a new set for my current dogs and use it as an excuse to not only work with wood but practice rabbet joints.
The ones above are 6 1/2” square and 2 1/2” tall made of the big orange box store clear pine. All the joints are rabbeted including the top rabbeted to the base. The finish is a couple coats of amber shellac and the writing is courtesy of the wife. The dogs can’t read so I am sure they don’t care if their names are on them.
And yes, they are different… I didn’t pay attention to grain direction when putting the tops on so one shows all end grain and another doesn’t. A rookie mistake that I know but the dongs dont care.
Again, another simple skill building project that came out ok.
