free standing water bottle search

I'm hoping you can help again. I had seen some water bottle stands husbands had made and when I saw them I decided I realllllly want this type of water bottle for my puppy this summer. I've searched the net and just can't find what I want so I'm asking here if anyone knows where to find a good stand that holds a glass bottle?
Thanks much.

I purchased each of mine on Havanese Rescue Auctions. Like you said it seems to be a home-made item and then at least the money went to HavRescue. They are great for hav's with beards.

You've probably already found these links if you've been looking around, but I'll share them anyway. I don't know any that are made to hold glass bottles, and I suspect it is because it would take more work to make them more stable. A glass bottle is heavier than the plastic bottles and many of the stands made for the plastic bottles already get top-heavy when filled with water. Susan (mckennasedona) has been successful in this area, but he's a one-of-a-kind guy anyway.

Another place to get one is : http://www.bottlebabies.com/ordering.htm I got mine from there, and have been very happy with it. (I got the largest size.) Someone else from the forum didn't like theirs, though....

Kimberly thanks for the links. I had seen the first 3 but not the last one and that might be doable for hubby!
I hadn't thought about the glass weight so I guess I'll stick with plastic bottles.

Since I'm new here when (and how) are the Hav. Rescue auctions?

Yes, I really love the wood, furniture-quality one that one of the Forum's DH made! But, I'm not handy with power tools, (Ha!)

Nanatotwo,
My husband makes the stainless steel one that Amanda posted about in a thread on the forum. It does hold a glass bottle because I don't like the idea of using plastic ones for my girls although it could hold a plastic bottle. It is made of stainless steel so it will not rust and it is welded together so it will pretty much last forever. It is adjustable in height. It weighs enough not to tip over but it is lightweight enough to be portable. It can be used inside or outside. It is designed to be unobtrusive and designed so that you can easily see when the bottle needs refilling. PM me if you are interested. I haven't yet posted a price for those who expressed an interest but I'm waiting to see if the price of the stainless has gone down, as DH is making four right now.
Leslie's husband makes the beautiful wooden ones that appear in the same thread.

Susan

Like Susan posted, my DH makes the wooden "furniture-like" stands. The one he made Tori is oak, but he can also do it in pine (which is less expensive and more lightweight) He can stain it, or paint it. Also, it can be customized to hold just a glass or plastic water bottle, or an "all-in-one" that holds both water bottle and food dish(es). Ours isn't adjustable, but he can easily make one that is.

As you can see, Tori's has 3 dishes (it was made to accommodate 2 dogs); one dish for water drips (there will always be a tiny bit of dripping, no matter what they tell you ) and two dishes for food. Since we're still a one dog family, I use one dish for kibble and the other for her canned or raw.

Price will be dependent on materials (oak/pine, glass/plastic bottle), options/size (paint/stain, one/two/??? dishes), and cost of shipping. If you're interested, PM me w/your desires and I'll get him to give me a price.
