Nice gesture and well done. How high is the bed? The ramp looks to be about 3 feet high - wouldn't want to roll out of bed.

That guy must be tall to have a bed that high. Cool ramp, looks good.

Nice ramp! I'm also really curious 'bout the oval window VW in the background, a '58 or 9 perhaps?

ah come on?! You didn't make all the spindles plum by drilling holes at an angle? Don't worry I wouldn't have either. Nice job. We tried to make a ladder for our golden retriever to get back into our ski boat after going for a swim. I small minor detail I didn't take into consideration. Wood floats! Go figure. Now we have a dock, so she just jumps off of that and climbs up on the rocks at the shore. Hope the pup enjoys. Again Great Job

If you tilt the picture slightly the spindles are plum. I actually thought about doing that but in the end went with the quicker way.

The oval in the background is a 56. It is one of my other hobbies. I am piling up things to do for when my kids are grown. That must be it because I do not have time for all of them right now.

Any chance you'd share your building plans? My little doxie has a bad back and keeps jumping off the couch. I need to build a smaller version of this.

Unfortunately hippymom83 I do not have any plans. The ramp was made based on the height of the bed. I can tell you that I used oak plywood, oak dowels, and scrap oak that I had laying around my shop. It was made based on the description that my friend gave me. I just kind of drew it up on a piece of paper and went from there.

Nice! My dogs are small and one is only 5 lbs. and it looks like the ramp doesn't go down to the floor far enough for her to get on. It is very pretty though for a larger dog. I am looking for ideas to build another ramp for our bed. I have one for the couch. Thanks for posting.

I recently built a dog ramp for my two little dogs. Took me about 5 hours and less then $100. It's made from plywood, 2×2, carpeting, removable wallpaper, cover edging, baseboard and garden fencing. Unfortunately, I, too, do not have any plans. I made it by what my needs were.
