I started this before the accident. It’s made out of the scrap wood from the night stand project. I hand cut half of the mortises and was getting frustrated. I vowed to finish it when I got my mortiser. The other half went very quickly. I used this project to learn about chip out. It’s not the nicest thing I’ve ever made, but the dog doesn’t seem to mind. I took a measurement from the dog and sketched it out on posterboard (still not using SketchUp). The finish is from a can of Mission Oak gel stain that I found at Woodcraft yesterday. I applied it to too large of an area and it dried, so I had to use more gel as a solvent. I’m pretty happy with the finish, especially since it’s one step. It has a hint of green to it that I’m not totally sold on. As a quick and dirty Stickley finish, it’s not bad.

Good use of scraps and I am sure your dog will get good use out of it.

Hand-cut mortises for the dog. Now that’s classy. I put you in my favorites – I have a ton of scraps that warrant a project like this for my pooches.

That is great idea. I noticed as our puppy has got bigger she will grab a mouth full of food, bring it up chew and then swallow. I think the bowls on the floor are to low for her.
