I made these raised dog feeders for the rescue my husband and I volunteer for. They are made of 1/2” BB ply for the tray and I used edge banding for inside the circles and 3/4” pine for the outer sides. The legs are pine, dowelled construction, legs angled with the bandsaw. I painted it all for durability and used a variety of glass tiles laid by hand in adhesive and then mortared. The group auctioned them off. I’ve made several others for them, hopefully will be successful auction items. I have made several for our own dogs and with the mortar and tile, they hold up great for years!

Nice job Kim. Those tiles will make for a easy to clean surface, that alone makes them 5 steps above any I have seen before.
