In caring for their dogs, owners get a wide variety of accessories: bowls, beds, toys, and so on. In this master class, we suggest you make a stand for a dog bowl with your own food. It will be especially convenient for large pets, which are uncomfortable to bend over to the bowls, which stand just on the floor.
For work you will need:
Inch PVC pipe;
PVC knee, 4 pcs .;
PVC plugs, 4 pcs .;
Galvanized brackets for fastening, 4 pcs .;
Glue for PVC pipes;
Fasteners (screws and screws);
Varnish or wood stain;
Black paint in a can;
Step 1. First, cut the board to the appropriate size (28 x 71 cm) and then be sure to process it. In this case, it was necessary to eliminate all the grooves and irregularities on the surface. For this, a special putty was used.
Please note that the dimensions of your board may vary, depending on the number and diameter of the dog feeding bowls.
Make a side out of wood so that the dog doesn’t stain the wall with food. In length, it should correspond to the table top of the stand, in width it should be twice / three times smaller.
Step 2. Measure the diameter of the bowls. Take measurements from points located under the rim of bowls. Otherwise, they will not be held in a stand or will not be located stable.
Step 3. Take the measured measurements on the tabletop. Be sure to indent between the circles. Cut out the holes for the bowls and cut the edges.
Step 4. Cover wood blanks with stain or varnish.
Step 5. From PVC parts, assemble the legs for the stand. The height of this detail will depend on your dog’s height. In this master class, the pipe had to be cut into pieces:
Further, following the given photo, collect legs. The plugs will need to be fixed in the lower part of the legs so that the tubes do not scratch the floor. The knees will be needed to create the corner joints, and the tees will fasten the transverse parts together. For reliability, connect the parts with a special glue.
Step 6. Paint the PVC pipe base with black paint. Apply it gently so as not to drip. Let the product dry.
Step 7. Attach a PVC pipe base to the worktop with staples.
Step 8. Attach the side board to the countertop and place the joint between them with wood glue.
Stand for bowls with dog food and water is ready. You just have to put it in the place where your pet is used to eat, and install the bowls themselves.
