Hi LumberJocks,

Although this is a painted project I decided to share it anyway.

I designed and built a modern “dog-house”, that doubles as a bedside table and as a dog bed and den.
Inside, the pet can snuggle up and is provided with a quiet, dark shelter and a matching cushion. The terrace offers a lookout spot with a cozy sheepskin.

I have the “house” listed on If you want to visit :). Direct link here:

I mostly used MDF for this project, which is great to work with for a project like this.

This is great! I love the modern look of this. Having two cats that constantly sleep in our bedroom they would love something like this. I think your price is totally reasonable for something this unique and also being handmade taking into account a shop rate and materials. Your dogs modeled the product well and it goes great in the setting.

That is a great idea indeed you got a bedside table as well and the dog house too, the dog would also be happy living in a newly built home which is amazing. You really done a great job.
