My daughter’s Lab puppy is over 90 lbs. and he;s not yet 9 months old. I made this bowl holder for his food and water dishes so he won’t have to bend over like a giraffe to get a drink or eat. Built from red oak,using the Kreg jig, with Red Mahogany stain, and 2 coats of poly. Tapered the legs on the jointer. That technique works great! Another YouTube video lesson, about 7 minutes. Worth the look. Feels safer than the tablesaw jigs I had. About 16” tall, 11” deep, and 22” long.
Also built my first router trammel/ circle jig for this project to make the holes that needed to be about 9 1/4 inches around. i had seen it on some videos, and it worked perfectly! I’ve since had to build another for holes 16”, 18” and 20”, just out of some scrap 1/3” plywood.
