Food dish holder for an older dog

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.

Nice job…they are useful, aren’t they?
We have one for our dog as well.

Very nice and simple design and also good wood choice. She can eat her food comfortably now.

Thanks very much. My friend sent a photo of the new owner. It turned out to be the perfect height for her

Looks great, very well crafted. Like the Japanese style and the wood choice. I’m sure the dog is grateful. Great job!

Have your say...
