Pallet wood Dog Bowl Stand

Submitted by zjlawlor on Thu, 09/25/2014 - 18:48

Used some cool old pallet wood to put together a dog food bowl stand I've been meaning to make. My big 10 year old lab is getting a lot slower and struggling a little bit so I thought this could help him out some and get his food and water closer to his face. Winged this one. Had a vague idea in my head that sort of evolved as it progressed. Used some left over 1x4 lumber to build a simple frame, and encased it in the pallet wood to give it the wood crate look (jigged some hand holds in the side to give this same look) . Used jig saw to cut the holes out of the 2 top boards for the bowls.
