Not all dogs need to have an elevated food/water bowl, but it is recommended for greyhounds. As soon as Steph knew she was going to adopt Mac, we started looking at options for purchasing elevated feeders, as well as options of DIYing one.
As it turned out, we decided to DIY one using an old table Steph has had since college. Ironically, she had given it to me to see if I could use it just a few days prior. After we knew Mac was coming home, I happened to spot the table. It was the right height and thought it would be a perfect DIY project!
#1 Upcycle an old piece of furniture
The solid lines are the bottom of the bowl. The dotted one is the actual cutting line. We wanted the bowls to fit flush with the top of the table, so we needed the openings to be larger than the bottom measurement. We drilled holes to be able to insert the jigsaw blade. The purple tape is there to mark the edge of the table.
