Materials and Tools:

48" x 12" wood stair tread
(2) stainless steel pet feeding bowls
jigsaw with wood-cutting blade
drill
tape measure
(4) tapered furniture legs
(4) table leg angled top plates
speed square
wood hand saw
paintbrush
semi-gloss paint
220-grit sandpaper
orbital sander
pencil
1/2" drill bit

Cut for Feeding Station Base

Measure and mark the wood stair tread at 24" with a pencil. Draw a line on the 24" mark using a square and pencil, and cut on the line using a wood hand saw.

Create Holes for Bowls

Place two bowls upside down on the wood stair tread, and measure to space them evenly. Trace each bowl onto the wood using a pencil, and drill a hole inside each traced circle using a 1/2" drill bit. Cut out each circle by placing the jigsaw blade into the drilled hole, and cutting approximately 1/4" inside of the drawn circle. Place the bowls inside of the holes to ensure they fit, and make adjustments if necessary.

Sand and Paint Wood

Sand the entire piece using an orbital sander and 220-grit sandpaper. Paint the wood stair tread and the tapered wood legs with semi-gloss paint. Allow ample time for paint to dry.

Attach Legs

On the underside of the stair tread, measure and mark 1" from each corner with a pencil. Install table leg angled top plates in each corner on the 1" mark with the provided screws. Attach the tapered legs to the angled top plates.

Insert Bowls

Flip the piece over, and place bowls inside of holes.
