This is a bench that I made for our dog. It gives him a place to sleep and also allows him to look out the window. My wife is making a proper pad for the top of it.
It is made of solid oak for the frame and oak plywood for the rest. I used the Kreg jig exclusively for joinery and loved it.
The finish is two coats of Minwax gel stain with a brush-on lacquer from Minwax. I really liked working with the gel stain. I had a hard time getting the lacquer to lay down smooth but it was also my first time using it.
Check out more about this project on my blog.
