« Part 5: Tall Dog Gate Part 6 of Small Projects series Part 7: Clamp Stand »

Dogs! We have two sizes, small and bigger. Roscoe is an English bulldog who doesn’t like to share with the other, smaller, dogs. Due to extreme inbreeding Roscoe can’t eat if the bowl is flat on the floor. The better half had been holding his dish by hand twice a day until I built this simple dog bowl stand.

It’s just at the right height for him. It was built out of some 2×10 and 1×12 scraps. I beveled the corners of the sides to make it less of an ankle biter.

I didn’t have a compass (or I have one but couldn’t find it) so I had to lay out the circles with a ruler. I marked the center and then radius marks every 45° or so and hand connected the segments. The result was a little ragged in spots but all is covered by the bowl lip.

Looks like he likes it! Always nice to be able to build what you need (with custom height, etc). Nice!

Where’s the napkin holder?... even before we start discussing the salt and pepper shakers!
