Dog Crate Bookshelves

Newest Video! I love creating, here's what I'm up to!

I took Ana's standard dog kennel, turned it 90 degrees and placed the door where the side would be.  From there I built upward, including a book shelf section to use the space above the crate more effeciently.  I also increased the height of the crate to 32 inches to match the height of a standard crate.  The door was modified to use the large 3 inch pieces because the 2 inch was too flexible in my opinion.  This is the second one I have built, learning from the mistakes of the first one.  I added L brackets on the inside to make it so I could take it apart, and used the Kreig Jig so I can replace parts as they wear out or are gnawed on.
