Milk- painted ash dog crate

This project was based on your plans and dimensions, with a few modifications. I created more slats (41 in all!), and spaced them a bit differently. I also added a pull out tray on the bottom, lined with thick plastic, to ease cleanup if necessary. The crate was painted with soldier blue milk paint and finished with two coats of boiled linseed oil. Finished off with brass barrel bolts and hinges. Our schnauzer loves it!
