« Part 18: Devlin's First Tool Box Part 19 of Small Projects series Part 20: Jigsaw Stand »

Have too many dogs running around. We have drafty tile floors throughout and mostly Shih-Tzu’s and they don’t like the cold floor to sleep on. The better half wanted little platforms to put the dog beds on.

These are 2’x2’ pieces of 3/4” ply on 6” high 2”x4” legs. For stability the 2”x4” feet have the front feet parallel to the sides and the back feet are mounted parallel to the back.

The first pair were clear coated and very plain.

On the second pair I added trim to the front and sides to cover the edges of the plywood. The trim was beveled instead of mitered to soften the sharp corners. I was spraying white the day I built the 2nd pair and ran the gun out on the platforms.

Nice! Maybe you can scrounge up about six times the wood and build me one for this big boy so I can have my outdoor couch back!
