Wooden Dog Kennel Furniture Built By You

Easy to follow plans to to build your own wooden Dog Crate.

The first time I was asked to build a dog kennel, I almost said no.  We were getting ready to move and finalizing the adoption of our Son.  It was a busy time.  It sounded like a fun project so I took it on and did a video for my youtube channel.  It has snowballed into one of my most popular videos and launched a whole new area of my business.

Today, I build custom dog crate furniture built-to-order and I also sell plans so you can make your own.

The added work I get from these Doggie Dens really helps the family.  We now have three kids 3 and under.  Being able to work in my shop and have the flexibility to run inside to help my wife, have the three year old with me in the shop while I’m working, etc. has been a blessing, and I owe it to your constant pestering!

You see, when I built that first kennel I never planned on making another one.  Then came the requests for me to build one, then for plans.  Then I made promises to make plans and y’all held me to my promises.  These Dog Crates can be easily tailored and customized to match your furniture.

I’m planning on really ramping up the products and plans I offer in 2018.  I’m currently designing a Tack Trunk/Hope Chest for my Son and Daughters for Christmas.  I’m working on making a set of plans and Youtube video to go with it.  I recently did a video on how to make your own Barn Doors. I’m not sure about making plans for those. They are so easy the video may be enough.  I was also contracted to build a fold down workbench in a garage in the near future.  Is that something you might want plans for?

I would love to see your finished DIY Dog Kennel too.  Please send me a few pictures that I can share. Do you use your Dog Kennel as a entry table, a sofa table, an end table, or entertainment center?

What would you like to see plans for the most?  I can make plans for a Single Wooden Dog Kennel.  I can design plans for the Large Wooden Double Dog Kennel.  Down the road, I want to do a full bedroom suite.  I’m also going to be making new cabinets for my kitchen. I could make plans for a few of the basic cabinets so you could build your own cabinet for a remodel?  Let me know your ideas; that’s how this all got started in the first place. Dog Crate end tables and sofa tables…who knew.

Thank you for all your support; without it, Dailey Woodworks would not be where it is today.

Rustic Display Shelf with Adjustable Shelves

I made this display shelf for a repeat customer who has purchase several of my projects.  I used reclaimed southern yellow pine and used a vinegar/steel wool solution to age the wood.

For this project I purchased and used for the first time the KREG Shelf Pin Jig. It is a straight-forward and simple jig for small projects.  If you drill shelf pins for a living then you’ll want something different.  If you’re a DIY’er or a small-scale shop like me this is a great tool to have for occasional use.

The dimensions for this project are 4ft from the base to the top shelf.  I staggered the sides 2-4 inches above that.  It is 3ft wide and 12in deep.  The center section is 18″ wide the two sides are around 8″ wide.  I forget the exact measurements.

A Shelf for a Wipe Warmer

My son has become very active recently.  He’s now crawling, pulling up on things, and pulling the dog’s tail.  He is also kicking the wipe-warmer off of his changing table.  I’m sure it would break if I didn’t do something about it quick.

My wife requested (for a few weeks) that I build a simple shelf to hold the wipe warmer out of his reach.

DIY Growth Chart

My wife ordered vinyl decals to make a growth chart for our son.  We got it from Little Acorns a shop on Etsy.  I picked up a 6ft pine 1×12 from the store then stained it with Minwax Golden Oak and finished with Wipe-on Poly.

Two-Step Step Stool

This project was another one of those “for family” projects.  My mother-in-law just became a licensed massage therapist and rented a small office space.  If you’re in the Bryan-College Station area (TX) you should check her out.

Making A Headboard Bench

Back in October I came across an old headboard and footboard.  I am quick to pick up free furniture because I can normally repair, remake, or reuse the parts.  I’ve seen quite a few “Headboard Benches” on Pinterest and the like so I decided to make one.
