Dog/Cat beds!

Originally I made a dog bed for our bulldog, Odin, out of a reclaimed fence. My friends and family really liked the design and said that I should try and sell a few. With our wedding right around the corner I finally took their advice to make a little extra cash. My Fiance and I so far have made and sold 8 of them! One customer wanted one at the same level as her bed so that her cats could sleep next to her, so it was made quite a bit taller.

This build has now snowballed into a charity project. While drinking a beer and admiring my work I thought to my self "this would be a great way to give back to the local humane society". Right then my close friend walked in and I pitched my idea to him. His work uses shipping crates, so there is constantly a flow of materials around him. Needless to say he is starting to stockpile and come November we plan on making as many as we can to donate! I can't wait to give back.
