Simple Dog Bench

About: Always busy, always making things. In the beginning especially analog circuits with LED's and electronic circuits. Later began my love for wood. When i bought my own place the man-cave was born. In this cave...

Intro: Simple Dog Bench

instead of paying tons of money for a nech that will be destroyed if the queen (my dog) doesn't like it, why not build a very strong but yet wonderful bench of you're own!!

Step 1: Size

hello all. time for my second instructable.

My girlfriend asked me to build a bench for our dog.
the first thing to do is to measure up the size.
I had no idea what size I need to use for my dog, eventually I used the size of a foldable crate because the dog fits nicely

Step 2: Measure and Cut

once you got you're sizes, draw it on a piece of paper.
this is a very helpfull tip because it wil remind you on what sizes you're gonne cut.
be aware also on thickness of the material because sometikes you have to cut one size larger so that it closes nicely.

I used a very large piece of wood board I had laying around plenty of wood left for this project.

Step 3: Assemble

after cutting with a jigsaw ( unfortunately no circular saw, but hoping to get one for my birthday) its is time for the assembly.
always dril a small hole before screwing or otherwise yiur wood will split!

the small legs where maee using some scrap wood from the cutting

Step 4: Look at What You Have Made

now look at that! al of our animals like it! just a small pillow for decoration and volia!!
