Desk riser to dog dining table

Materials: Desk riser, Capita legs

Description: We wanted to raise the dog’s food up off the floor, but didn’t like the wire food dish holders they sell at the pet store. We were going to try to hack our old lack coffee table and make a mini dog dining table, but in the location our dog eats, we really didn’t want squared edges. While in IKEA, we had the idea to use their desktop risers and Capital legs. It’s a super easy re-purpose.

    The Ikea store in Singapore is using this setup as a PC monitor stand on the Galant table.

    The height of the Capita legs that they use is 10 cm.

    The bowls will be easily knocked over if they’re just sitting on top of a table like that. Anybody can put bowls on a table, I wouldn’t call this a hack…You could at least cut holes in the table surface to put the bowls in. Just saying.

      Hmm, well, I made the table for him many months ago and nothing has ever once been spilled. In order to put holes in the table to rest the bowls in, we would have to have had a much bigger surface, which defeated the purpose of building his table in the first place. And I didn’t think it was a hack either, that’s why I called it a re-purpose. Thanks for looking! ;)
