  1. Place the bowls upside down on the board and measure each so that they are equally apart from the center of the board. Do not get too close to each outer edge so that you do not hit your legs.
  2. Outline each bowl and set it aside
  3. Measure and mark the center of each bowl
  4. Drill each hole in each dog’s dish using a 6-inch hole saw
  5. Polish all edges, including both holes, and wipe wood dust
  6. Measure the inside of each corner on the underside of the board and mark it as 1 inch
  7. At each corner, use a drill bit to drill a 1/4 inch deep hole at each corner mark and wipe off any dust.
  8. Apply wood wax sealant to all four legs and board according to product instructions.Be careful not to get wax in the drill holes
  9. Wipe off excess wax and buff at the same time
  10. Place the board face down, apply a small amount of glue to each hole and screw in the legs. Let it dry.
  11. Turn the whole over and put the bowl inside
