I made a pair of dog dishes/bowls. One is larger than the other because water goes into the larger one. The dogs are large...
Please enjoy this Instructable.
Click the thumbnail above to view the youtube vid of me actually making these!!
Step 1: PREP MATERIALS
You will need to size your dog dishes/risers appropriately.
Cut the squares, I used oak plywood.
Trace the dog bowl.
Cut the circle just inside the line to accept the lip of the dog bowl.
OPTIONAL, stain the wood. You may also want to see the natural wood tone.
OPTIONAL, cut flat metal edging and drill holes in it to screw into the wood. You can also use solid oak trim.
Screw in your edging on all four sides if you chose to use trim, recommended.
Step 2: ASSEMBLY
For two risers you will need to have:
8 threaded pipes.
8 end caps.
Screw a flange on one end of a pipe and an end cap on the other end.
Screw the flanges to the bottom corners of the wood, touching the inside edges of the trim as seen in pics.
Apply a few coats of spray poly onto the entire thing, top and bottom, wood and pipes alike.

Now you have a unique doggie dish/platform!
