Here is a custom dog kennel made for a coworker of my wife. It is a two sided separated kennel for 2 dogs. It was custom fit into a bay window. It features an open feel all around except for the divider between the two sides for 100% separation. This way the dogs won’t feel confined and have full access to view the outside as well as the inside of the house.
This kennel is made from poplar and aluminum deck rails that are 3/4 inches round. The wood was stained with General Finishes Dark Brown water based dye stain to match the rest of the furniture in the room where it’s located. I did a pre grain raise with distilled water and sanded it down. Then I sprayed and wiped the initial coat of dye and then did the spray / no wipe and tone method to get the right color. The angles were easily accomplished and secured together with the Festool Domino which made quick, easy, and very secure work on all joints.
The measurements are 84 inches wide, 38 inches deep, and 32 inches tall. The fur babies will enjoy this for many years!!!!
