What's better than one greyhound? Two! Tosh is the second "dog daughter" to join the Mother Daughter Projects team so a new raised feeding stand was needed. Follow along as we share our DIY version.
Steph used the sliding feature of the miter saw to cut the pieces. Our measurements are based on the space where the stand would live and the number of bowls we used. Base your measurements on your space and number of bowls you intend to use. (This is a Makita battery powered compound miter saw.) Our cut list was 28" piece for the top and (2) 13" pieces for the legs.
We marked the placement of the bowls and drew around the perimeter of the bowl. The cut needed to be about 1/4 of an inch inside this mark. We made a quick circle pattern the size we needed on the computer. We eyeballed the placement inside the larger circle and drew around it. We did end up using a black marker on this line to make it easier to see when cutting.
The stain we decided to use was leftover from another project. It's full coverage, but we were able to get the look we wanted by watering the stain down a bit, wiping it on and then wiping back to expose a bit of the grain. It worked perfectly! And, bonus, the beauty of this Olympic stain is the soap and water cleanup!
Do you have pets at home at this would be perfect for? Let us know about them in the comments below!
