I made this dog bed from offcuts from older projects and reclaimed wood from a skip. It was a very quick project as we needed the bed for our awesome new dog Chase! I used the Kreg R3 to join the box together and finished it with milk paint and water based lacquer. It was a really fun build and chase seems to like it!! I made a video of the build please have a look and thumbs up and subscribe if you like it.

Great looking dog bed! Looks like Chase will be very comfortable there!

Enjoyed the video also—was nice to see how it came together.

Talk about woodworking going to the dog … this one sure does.
How big is Chase going to get?
Nice design and it looks like he approves.
