Since normal dog bowls often tip over or get pushed around, we made two different food bars/water troughs/feeding places for our dog. So that she can eat and slurp water at a comfortable height and everything stays in place!

Project 1:

Made a cuboid box from the multiplex boards (made to measure) from Tosize.de, sanded the surfaces with 40/80/120 grain, rounded/chamfered all edges. Made 2x round cutouts (for bowls) in the upper part with a jigsaw and also broke off the edges and sanded them very finely. Then flamed/blackened all surfaces with a blowtorch. Cut round wood/branches from fruit trees into thin but uneven slices. Glued these onto the surfaces on the front and sides, filling the gaps with small pieces of wood. Inserted stainless steel bowls into the cutouts. Done!

Project 2:

Similar to Project 1, a substructure was built from the multiplex panels. Senna glued wood panels were attached to this and the same procedure was followed as in Project 1 (but Senna was attached instead of round timbers)

Project 1: D 26.0 cm x L 49.0 cm x H 30.0 cm

Project 2: D 27.8.0 cm x L 49.0 cm x H 31.0 cm
