DIY Pedestal Dog Feeders

As promised, I’m back today to share the DIY pedestal dog feeders that Emmett built for our fur babies. Click through for the super detailed tutorial.

Cut the MDF

Setup Your Workspace


Measure and plan your dimensions, then cut the four sides and trim pieces to the appropriate size.


Drill pocket holes

Using the two smaller rectangular pieces for the base and the pocket hole jig, drill your holes.

Assemble the pedestal

Setup Your Workspace


Begin by assembling the corner two pieces with glue, then reinforce with pin nails.

Add the trim pieces

Setup Your Workspace


Miter the ends of the trim pieces and affix them to the pedestal using glue and finishing nails.

Silicone the stone

Setup Your Workspace


Put a bead of silicone around the top edge and adhere the stone to the MDF. Allow it to completely dry before painting or moving the piece.

Prep and paint

Setup Your Workspace


Prepare the piece for paint by sanding and filling any holes.

I’ll wrap things up by saying this… having well planned and nicely designed pet products makes a big difference in the overall aesthetic of a room.
