End table / Dog crate

I was tired of looking at a plastic dog crate in my living room, so I decided to make one that was functional for him and nice to look at for me. After measuring the plastic crate, I gathered up scrap plywood and began to build. Pocket holes were used to fasten the sides. I bought nylon feet so it could be moved with out marking the floor. leftover stains from previous projects and a clear gloss top coat was used. Waiting for the staining to dry as well as the top coat took the most time. Painting would have been much faster. The molding was made from one piece of 2x2 stock. Outside corner molding was cut first on my BT300.Then installed to the side facing the wall. Next I ran the scrap piece on my router table using a 5/8 classical bit with bearing twice, once on each side. I then changed to a 1/2 inch straight bit to remove material on the "back", which gave me a three sided piece of molding to use on the front of the box to cover the edge.
