Introduction: Dog Bowl Chair

I bought these two old wooden chairs about a year ago at a yard sale for 1.00 each with the intention of this project. Tonight I finally got around to making the raised holders for the dog bowls.

Step 1: Sanding

First thing I did was sand off all the loose paint and just smoothed things out in preparation of applying poly. One of the chairs had a cracked piece of wood on the back but instead of glueing
it and fixing it I just sanded it down and left it.

Step 2: Cut Down the Legs

I used a piece of scrap to screw down the chair back to the table and clamp or of the legs measured a couple inches up on each leg and cut them off

Step 3: Cut Out Bowl Hole

I wanted to center the bowl up left and right but favor the front a bit. I traced the bowl lip then cut a circle 1/2 inch smaller than the lip and routed the seat with a round over bit and the bowl fits perfect.

Step 4: Finishing

I applied a wipe on polyurethane to the entire chair just to give it a little protection from water.
then finally add some felt pads to the leg bottoms.

Not trying to be mean, looks like how we potty trained the kids. Ha ha

the thought did cross my mind that I should have a talk with my 3 year old.
