Timber dog feeding station

Pine decking timber used to build a dog feeding station with storage space underneath.



The project


I designed and manufactured this feeding station for my dog. I gave it to him as a Christmas gift. He ripped the wrappings and ribbons to bits and then looked at it like, "What is this now?"


It is just the right height for him. It has his food bowl and water bowl. No more spilling water. He now knows where to come for dinner and his morning feed. He loves it and it has added so much more discipline to his feeding habits. 


Tools and materials


Tools and materials used in the project:






Step 1


Measure the height of your dog from the feet to below the nose. My dog is a big boy and I was amazed that he simply stood still for the measurements. 


Step 2


Measure and cut the timber to suit your space.


Step 3


Make a frame to cover the top and the front of the box. 


Step 4


Use screws to put box together. I used Pine decking timber from Bunnings Botany in NZ (a great store with fantastic staff). I faced the grip tread side on the outside of the box to give it a nice pattern. The decking timber is 100 percent waterproof as it is designed for your outdoor decks. Any food splashes can easily be wiped off to keep the feeding station clean. Any water splashes dry easily as well. 


The back of the box has storage space for his bags of dry kibbles and other treats.
