Step 1:

Measure out and cut 12”x1”x8’ board into 4 pieces that are 23 ¼” long.

Step 2:

Measure and cut 2 of the 2”x4”x8’ boards into 8 24” long pieces.

Step 3:

Measure and cut last 2”x4”x8’ board into 4 20 ¼” pieces.

Step 4:

Center the 4” side of 24”-long piece with 12” side of 12”x1”x4’ board.

Step 5:

Connect the pieces with 2" screws, using an electric drill and speed square. Drill pilot holes prior to screwing them together so the screw goes in to the wood more easily. Counter sink if needed to maintain a flat surface on the bottom of the toy.

Step 6:

Connect the 20¼” piece in between top of 24” pieces, using 3 1/2" screws.

Step 7:

Drill a hole 1’ up 24” piece using 15/16” spade bit. Repeat on the other side.

Step 8:

Make holes thru both sides of water bottles using 15/16” spade bit or a box knife.

Step 9:

Thread metal pipe through holes on the stand, putting up to 4 water bottles in the middle. Put a cap on both ends of metal pipe.

Step 10:

Add treats into water bottles and watch your dog try to flip over the water bottle to let out the treats. I don't have a dog, but my cat was very curious.
