i built this primarily out of cheap framing lumber. My main goal was to provide our new golden retriever pup with shelter for days that she is home alone and the weather is bad. I also wanted it to be a skill building project. Until this project i had no experience with mortise and tenon joinery, and i thought given the cheap material i was using this would be a good place to start. The entire frame is put together with mortise and tenon joints.(a little over kill for a dog house, but it was good practice) My wife did most of the painting. She requisted some stencils and the third pic shows what i came up with. I printed a coupld of pics off the net and taped them to 1/4 in ply and used my scroll saw to cut out the shapes.
thanks for looking.
