Cottage Life - DIY Industrial Dog Bowl

By Cottage Life

Begin by cutting a 2x12 piece of pine at 28”, and then find the centre of the board. We used 8” dog bowls for this project. For a perfect fit, use a jigsaw and cut your hole 7 ¾”. Don’t forget to drill a small hole within the circle for a place to start your saw.

Using a roundover router bit, soften all the edges before sanding smooth with 80-grit sandpaper and working your way up to 150-grit. Finish the wood with your choice of stain.

We used 1” iron pipe for the legs, which consisted of: eight flanges, two 5” pipes, four 3” pipes, four 2” pipes, and four tee fittings. Secure these to the underside of the wood using ¾” wood screws.

On the bottom we added furniture pads to keep the pipe flanges from scratching the floor. You could add some varnish or epoxy to the top for a waterproof finish.
