Project Information

A buddy of mine wanted a cool dog house for his boxer. It's all just treated ply and 1x's, except for some 1/4" oak ply on the top of the front, and the hackberry turned pieces on the sides. Since this wasn't a high budget project, I couldn't spend toooo much time making sure all joints were perfect, nor that everything was sanded just right. I was way more focused on the overall form. I would love to make some more, of far better quality, cause they are really just miniature houses and I could make them look really nice….but, I'd have to have a buyer, lol.

Everything is just stained, red mahog and walnut, except for the plywood arch decoration, it just has blo on it. The front looks the way it does cause I wanted to accentuate the knots in the base plywood for some reason…..and the oak ply was necessary to bring the 1/2" ply to the same level as the 3/4 boards. Anyways, I know it's weird, but what do ya'll think?

Cute Doghouse, Dave, well done! A lot better than the one I made for my dog. I converted a shipping crate by adding a roof and siding on it! :D
