I make and donate an item each year for a local no-kill humane society to help with their annual fundraiser. I’ve been into Mission Style furniture lately, so this dog bed was made in that style of red oak. No stain, two coats sanding sealer and two coats of lacquer, sprayed. The last picture is my dog, Bumper, who was adopted through this facility 7 years ago after being rescued from an animal hoarding situation. I think he might like one of these beds for himself!

Looks like Bumper is ready for a good night’s sleep in his new digs!

aww Randy! that’s awesome of you! and I think you’re right about Bumper wanting one of his own :) maybe with an orthopedic mattress!

Way good on you bud. Sounds like an idea we all should do for our local animal rescue groups.

That looks nicer than my bed. Ha!

Awesome project and awesome cause. Love it!

I’m really starting to enjoy unstained red oak too.

Somewhere on this site a guy built a nice four post dog bed that could be a fun one for you in the future. I keep saying I want to make one for my furry buddy, but the human requested projects always seem to take priority. Thanks for sharing!
