This is something I made for a friend who’s daughter has a dog who can’t eat from her dish if it’s on the floor. The food bowl is elevated enough for her.
The top is set into the legs at a 5 degree angle for stability, and walnut pegs help hold the legs in place. I made it from cypress, partly because it resists decay in a damp environment, and partly because I love it’s grain patterns. No stain, just a couple coats of wipe on poly.
The style and construction are Japanese influence, with some Western touches.
