Building a feed station
The first step of the woodworking project is to build the frame of the dog feed station. Therefore, cut the legs of the station out of 4×4 lumber and attach the 2×4 supports. Take accurate measurements and cut the components at the right size by using a nice circular saw.
Drill pocket holes at both ends of the supports and lock them to the legs, by using 1 1/4″ galvanized screws. Add glue to enhance the rigidity of the structure. Make sure the corners are square before inserting the screws.
Continue the woodworking project by building the top of the dog feeding station. Mark the lines with a pencil and drill starting holes. Use a nice jigsaw to make the round cuts. Smooth the cut edges with sandpaper and remove the residues, before attaching it to the frame. Make sure you adjust the size of the holes, so that you can fit the bowls quickly. Make sure the holes are centered the to piece of wood.
The next step of the woodworking project is to attach the top component is to the frame of the feed station. As you can easily notice in the plans, we recommend you to drill pocket holes through the supports. Drill the pocket holes along the inside faces of the frame.
Center the frame of the feed station to the top components and insert 1 1/4″ galvanized screws. Add glue to enhance the rigidity of the structure and let it to dry out for several hours. Alternatively, you can add glue to the joints and insert 2″ brad nails from the top into the base.
One of the last steps of the woodworking project is to take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, fill the pilot holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-grit sandpaper.
Top Tip: If you want to enhance the look of the woodworking project and to protect the table from decay, we recommend you to cover the components with paint or stain. Place the station in a proper location and move it whenever necessary.
