Wanted: free Dog Food feeder plans

Needs to accept a little over two 50 pound bags of dry dog food. I'm thinking of the gravity feed style.
I could design it myself - nothing complicated but if there's a free one already....

Why not just a small hog feeder? Would probably be as cheap or cheaper than materials...

One of the best I've seen is right next door and takes all of 1/2 hour to make. Take one of those big Rubbermaid containers, the ones designed to go under the bed because the are nice and thin. Stand on end against wall. Screw to wall. Cut opening in the bottom of the lid for dog food to come out. Best have a nice pan to catch it. Cut a nice door in 'top' of lid for pouring in the dog food. Duct tape makes a nice hinge.
You will need to secure the lid to the box or the pressure of the dog food will push it off. Duct tape will work, glue as well, even screws.
Now you have a dispenser that you can see at a glance how full it is.
Women seem to love these.

I forgot the price....$15.
And I've been getting bread, cookies, pies, tomatoes, green beans as payment for an entire year. How can you beat that!

Thanks for all the suggestions -- I think.
I plan to build one that looks kinda good -- It'll be in my laundry room so it doesn't have to be fine furniture. It shouldn't be designed for the barn livestock either. Besides, I can tailor the design to fit the space....

If you leave out the duct tape the on end Rubbermaid looks great. Perfect for the laundry room. Ask the little woman, $100 oak box, or $15 shiny Rubbermaid container? I already know her REAL answer, even if she does tell you to make the oak box.<g> Women love Rubbermaid containers. Of course if you're just looking for an excuse to use your tools and build stuff I'd say to hell with the little woman and start making sawdust.:)

Try the Rubbermaid idea and if it works, build a wood casing around it. I think if I had my dogs self feed I'd next be making wheelbarrows' to cart them around in.

Made one very similar to this, smaller scale, only holds about 60 lbs of dog food, and I used aluminum blast gates at the bottom for the food dispenser. E-mail me and I will try to find the plans. I can scan 'em and send, then you just have to scale up to your size (probably just double it.)

That's close to what I was imagining. I can modify the dimensions, etc. to get what I want -- no need to send me detailed plans. Thanks!
