    I have an old bowl and pitcher and an old dresser. Can't figure out how we can mount the pitcher so it is used for the water faucet.

      In the picture above, wood was mounted on the back. I would cut 2 semi cirles at 2 different depths to place the pitcher on. One piece of wood if shorter used in front and a second higher piece in the back to allow the pitcher to pitch down. You could glue the pitcher to the wood for stability.

    What did you drill bowl and pitcher with. Wet drill or what

      It depends on what the pitcher is made of. If it is all ceramic, then you would need a diamond drill bit. If it is enamelware, then a combination of a diamond drill bit for the enamel and a metal hole saw for the metal part of the pitcher would work

    I have bought 2 bowls at auction in the deep, dark past. One is normal sized, the other HUGE, so I use them for large salads for pot luck parties.

    I used a diamond coated hole cutter (1 3/4") and it worked great for an old porcelain bowl. It is available from It is meant to be used wet to prevent overheating. Just go slow and it works beautifully!!!
