This is a dog feeding table…... in case you couldn’t tell. The table elevates the dog’s water and food bowl to a height that makes it easier for them to use which is a requirement for a sophisticated canine in today’s dog eat dog world. Other requirements were to match to design and color of the breakfast room table. The table is about 16 inch high (tall dog), 12 inches wide and 20 inches long.

The top is made with from jointed birch and stained to match the kitchen table and sealed with polyurethane. Holes for the bowls were cut with a jig saw and edges routed with a combination of router bits to create the same edge as the kitchen table. I found legs at Lowe’s that worked and attached them to the top with rails (not sure what to call them) made from base board molding. The Boss is happy with it and of course that is what matters. My only disappointment with this project is that the construction of this piece of fine furniture didn’t create the need for a new tool. Next time

Another example of lack of planning. You always need a new tool for the project at hand! ;>)

Great idea and a great looking project.

Looks good, but you better plan better next time so you can add to your tool collection.
Nice job

Good job. I guess the Woodcraft store is just down the road from you, huh? :-)

Planned or not, you made it look great! This is your work. You have my respect for it.

You Could have managed somehow!

At least a double pack of sandpaper or so!

If they order the project; PLAN AHEAD, include some extra resources for the future in the ordered buld!

You just were NOT looking out for the rest of us!

Seriously; that is if you are not angry with me by now, NICE JOB!
