This is the 4th raised dog feeder I have built. This one’s for Izzy, an 1yr old yellow labrador retriever. She’s much younger in the picture, probably 3 months old. Anyways, the owner wanted a contemporary style. She designed it. I wasn’t impressed but she gets what she wants. I used 2 sheets of MDF, 5/8” laminted to 1-1/4” thick. Painted with both oil base primer and black paint. Although this whole project took no more than 2 shop hours, it took almost an hour to clean my shop and blow out out the mdf dust. It just reminded me why I hate to use this in the shop.

You can see the other 2 raised dog feeders here.

Nice Job! I have a Chlt Lab that I made one for as well. Greatest dogs in the world! Keep it up!

Did you say two sheets of MDF were used to build this? Looks great but Izzy is the best judge.

Nice feeder, she looks just like my yellow lab when he was a pup. Now he weighs 115lbs and still thinks he is a pup.

Dusty – I meant to say, it’s 1-1/4” thick, laminated with two 5/8” thick mdf.
