    I love the raised feeder. I am thinking of making but thinking to build it around a plastic tote to keep dog food mouse safe. I also have to space the bowls farther apart or add vertical a partition, sisters fuss at each other while eating. Your simple design lends itself to many variation, thank you!

      All you need to do is build around the tote and use the tote as your measure and i am sure it will turn out beautiful
