Dog Bed

Simple router techniques can transform a standard dog bed project into a project with visual interest. The project starts with a basic plywood frame with each side attached to posts using pocket holes and glue. The frame was overlayed with poplar strips cut to look like vertical shiplap. To achieve this look a 1/4" router bit was set to a cutting depth of 1/8" and cut on one side of each piece and then glued in place.

TIP: Set your fence once for repetitive cuts! In order to ensure a snug fit cut your side and back plywood to the proper height and then cut all the poplar strips. Repeat for the smaller front piece.

Because dog bedding can be expensive, a standard bed pillow wrapped in my dog's favorite blanket was used for the bedding.
