This is the lounge chair that I built for my baby’s 30th. I think my dog was more excited than she was!

Yup, you need to make another one – and then one for yourself! ;-)

Great build – it looks like it will last for decades.

One suggestion though – you might want to consider plugging the holes. It’s a bit of an effort but it will double the life of this chair. Well worth it for such a nice piece of furniture.

Nope, you need to make 2 more so you won’t have to share with the dog! ;-) nice work.

Ditto what Bob said about the great build. The chair isn’t bad either. :-)

Seriously, though, it looks like your wife is going to have a hard time getting any use out of that lounger, because somebody else obviously thinks it is for them.

Considering the dog outweight the wife, I don’t think your wife will win the battle for the lounge.

Now that you made one for the the dog, you need to make another for the wife.

Great work and beautiful models to help show it off.

Nicely done. Bob’s suggestion of filling the holes will definitely be worth following, then follow up with two more!

Absolutly stunning and the lounger is great too

I am sure if you build another one your wife will enjoy it.

It looks very comfortable. Very well built, I am sure someone will get a lot of use out of it.

Great job on the chair, I have to agree with other filling the holes really help both making it look even better and lasting longer as well. Great looking dog! Amazing how they can train us! I have a Chlt Lab and love her to death!

Nice work! I love the shot of the dog and your wife ..the dog looks like he’s saying to her” why are you on my lounge chair?” Did you use a plan or just winged it? Whats the materiel? Cedar? Mahogany?

Nice gift! Our dogs look almost identical! I think my family dog is only in one of my project posts here on LJ.

Here he was as a pup…

Great looking Dog and chair. I brought home a Berner from Germany, after beign stationed there. Sadly he didn’t agree with our tiny apartment and being left alone all the time so we gave him to someone who had a farm. We did end up with two Saint Bernards though. Bets Dogs I’ve had, they died last year at the age of 10.
