I recently adopted a brother and sister pair of golden retrievers. They were given up for adoption at age 8 due to the owner having to go to assisted living. I recently lost my Golden Sadie(my avatar) to lymphoma and we fell in love with these two the minute we met. I made this feeder..based on a design I do for a single dog version. This one is made from Hickory, and finished with General Seal A Cell, and 7 coats of wipe on gloss poly.

Panels in the clamps..

My circle cutting jig mounted on my DeWalt trim sized router, with the plunge base..I use an upcut spiral plunge bit..This jig works excellent, and the dust collector adapter for this router gets 98% of all the dust/chips

Top all routed..

Using a template and a template router bit I do the curves on the legs..

Pocket screw holes for assembly..

Springing the curve for the back piece..

Using the cutoff as a clamping jig to attach the back piece..

Freshly Finished..

The clients approve!

Just made a similar feeding station for a friends aging dog.

Didn’t have the slick circle cutting jig you have there, can you give me more info on that?

Project looks good and obviously the dogs approve.

EggMan..Yes it’s the Jasper. I am going to do a review on it, but it works flawlessly. It attaches easily to my router, and is a simple design. You drill a 1/8”dia hole in the center of your circle, drive in the pin, and just look up your circle dia on the guide and drop the router on the pin in the correct hole. That d/c adapter for my plunge base is awesome as gets almost all the dust. The one thing about the circle jig..I damaged the jig by tightening down one of the mounting screws too was over a hollow section of the base. I was able to epoxy it back together but if you get it be careful of that.

The project turned out great, the dog bone rug is a nice addition.

Sorry to hear of your recent loss, all dog lovers know what that is like.

My daughter noticed the rescue magnet on your band saw.

What is more impressive than this project is you stepping up & adopting the 8 year old goldies, very awesome.

Thanks for sharing.

Great work congrats on your new family members. Sorry to hear about sadie as well, We have a Chlt Lab named Kiana whos my buddy. She follows me everywhere and we take her to hospitals and schools on fridays as a Therapy Servce Dog.

Your system to make these is great, might have to go that way. Here is a pic of one I made and make for her & auctions for charity’s…. They seem to be a big hit because we all know us dog owners are softies! LOL
