Years ago, my wife asked me to make her one of those pet food stations that you see everywhere these days. The ones in the store are overpriced, and I had enough scrap wood laying around to make one for free. My wife bought a few bowls and I cut out some holes in a 1″ x 10″ piece of lumber to drop them in. The piece evolved over the years. After we moved from DC to to our temporary condo in SC, we added feet to the feeder and my wife painted it yellow. During our recent kitchen remodel, my wife repainted it again to match the room:
It came out okay, but it would look better if the mangy animals didn’t spill their half-chewed food all over it.
