Dog Kennel Coffee Table

Submitted by JanetK on Wed, 02/08/2012 - 09:28

I love this project. My dogs Goldie and Chloe love their new house. They are sisters who just have to sleep with each other. They had their own metal crates but when Chloe was a puppy she would always go in with Goldie and they would snuggle. It was a tight fit for them as Chloe got older but they still had to snuggle. Now they are in heaven with their new bedding and house.

This is beautiful! Trying to convince my husband that we should do this so I can get that grey plastic dog crate out of our living room. Maybe this will show him how much better it would be to build one.

Great minds think alike! I want to build one for my dog, but as a bedside table. Beautiful job! That top with that grain is just stunning!

Where can I find the plans for this?

What did you use to seal the stain to make it look so shiny? or what brand of stain did you use? that looks incredible! I'm thinking of some wainscoting on the sides as well for my project...

Your post inspired me to pursue this project with some left over walnut and it turned out great! I think my post is on page 10 if you're curious. Thanks.

I'm going to try to make mine larger as my fur baby is Grt Dane/Lab mix & needs a bit more room. My idea is to put it at end of my king size bed like you would a cedar chest/hope chest. Wish me luck!
