Looks good.. top could be finished as well as the bottom, and possibly some rubber feet to keep it from sliding across the floor... but still a great looking piece

Celia is so very talented and amazingly great to work with! She created a beautiful elevated dog feeder that looks more like a work of art or a cool piece of furniture than what it actually is. I recommend her highly and I'm more than impressed with the result!

This is a really fantastic, unique and functional piece. It was packed well and arrived promptly. Our dog tends to splash a LOT of water out of the bowl when he drinks, so I wonder if that may compromise the painted wood surface over time. But for now we are really enjoying it! Thank you so much!

Handmade housewares

This shop started simply by making things that I needed and deciding that others might also find them useful. Mostly, I sell elevated dog feeders but over the years have designed housewares that are simple, elegant and useful.
One thing I like about working small is that it gives me a chance to use up smaller pieces of wood normally considered scrap and thrown away, which I hate to do. I use up as much of a board as I possibly can.
The woods I use are from the urban forest (trees that were taken down due to disease, storm damage, or in the way, and then milled and kiln-dried.) The plywood is mostly left over from other projects and the paint and wood finish are low VOC.
The dog feeders came about after I adopted a retired racing greyhound I named Zumo who needed an elevated feeder. I had a hard time finding nice ones-ones that fit in with contemporary decor and could be considered furniture- without the doggy motifs. He's gobbled through a lot of prototypes and sizes which has helped me get the designs just right.
Product development is an ongoing process. Simplifying without compromising quality seems to be the key.
