Dog dishes from wine crates....

As the owner at one time of three Labrador retrievers, I am always looking for lovely but practical items for our home. The dog dishes I have created  are just that.

I make each item individually with the care and concern deserved  by your dog. Each crate is treated with Briwax, a natural product made from beeswax, and then sealed with several applications of polyurethane to protect the wood. I recommend using the dishes for food unless you can maintain 

the wood over time as a result of water exposure.  Consider the pedestal cut crystal bowls which I regularly find at second hand shops for your dog’s water  - a handsome combination. I only have a limited supply of these and will not be making more at this time.
