Good Evening Everyone,I Finally finished Rovers retreat(AKA Pebbles)seen in the attach├ęd photo’s, This was the inspiration for me to get back into wood working,this project inspired me to start setting up my shop and making sawdust I have been working on this in between other projects, It is a combination of 3/4 inch oak hardstock and 3/4 inch oak plywood, the door is on a pocket door track so it folds in and out of the way,so when Pebbles want to come and go.

Great project. Love the door. I wouldn’t have thought to do that.

We just got a puppy that looks like Pebbles. I love the kennel. Beautiful and classy. I see how the door slides in the track. What stops it from coming all the way out and what keeps it closed?

Thank you,Vicki for your comments, its a pocket door track so it acts just like a regular drawer track will only come as far as the track is long I ordered mine from lee valley up here in Canada its 24 inches long and uses two European style hinges to attach the door,hopefully this helps

Thanks todd
