My little sister (18 years younger than I) wanted a dog bed for her mini Australlian Shepard. She found one online that she liked, but didnt want to pony up 180 bucks for a dog bed – commission big brother :)

This one fit the look of the one she liked. Started as a lowly piece of Poplar from HD.

Went through the usual fittings, with all curves cut on the jigsaw.

The piece was all assembled using buscuit joinery.

The entire piece was suntanned to achieve the chocolate brown. Then finished with home made wipe on – 4oz BLO, 5 oz MS, and 4oz clear satin poly.

Now to make the pillow for it…

My dyslexia set in and I read the title of your post as a popular dog bed but after reviewing the pictures I’m sure is is popular with your sister and her dog. Nice build.

Isn’t it nice to have family who can help you out with such things. It’s also great to think that you can do stuff like this without having to pay a bomb for something you can make at a fraction of the price too!
