« Part 2: Legs, Aprons, Haunched Tenons, and Cloud Lifts Part 3 of Greene and Greene inspired raised dog tray series Part 4: Mortises and dry fit of base »

My initial crude drawings didn’t give me a sense of the proportions of the apron heights. I wanted to see how it would look with the 3.5” height against the 14” leg all assembled. So I made a real sketchup to size…

I think it looks okay. This was done quickly this morning and without all the curves or exact spacing in the lengths of each cloud lifts, but gives me a good idea that it will look fine. The legs will each have a bit carved out of the outer corner edge too.

I can’t wait to get back to working on it next wekeend.

John, send me a PM with your e-mail and I’ll forward it to you. Just know its pretty crude, but the overall dimensions I think are accurate. The placement of the plugs though aren’t, etc.

I was worried people would think I was nuts for dovetailing my dogs feeding stations! You’ve got me beat!
