This is my first project. It is half done but some other things came up so I wanted to post up the partially completed product. My wife and I have two great danes, we got the second one back in April. The older dog has always had an elevated food/water bowl cabinet that her mom’s friend made for her about 4 years ago, it was made out of MDF with a white laminate. To keep the story short it was crap. So now that we have two Danes we wanted something that could feed them both that looked nicer. This is just the bottom half. I am going to make a top for it that with reach roughly 6.5’ tall. It will look alot like a china cabinet. It is made completely out of pine. Center bowl holds about 1.5 gallons.

BTW- I learned alot on this project, both things to do and not do.

Really Cool!!!

Don’t think I could use these proportions for my Bassett Hound, however!

That’s really neat. I could just about give my beagle a bath in that center bowl. LOL!

We have a Harlequine and a Mantle. I was always told, and never believed, that two are easier than one. Its true.

Tyson, when I first looked at the picture I wondered why your vanity had three bowls and no faucetts. I clicked on the picture and discovered what it really was and it was great! Great Idea and Great Job.
