Midcentury Modern Inspired Dog Bed



We plan on adopting a dog this summer and he will of course need a posh place to lay his ( or her) sweet head. I am currently crushing on hairpin legs so decided to do a mid century modern styled design.

    1. Step: 1

      Large 2e325a6c 08aa 4791 8252 24649a7053c8

      The MDF and ply wood needs to be cut with the tablesaw. The 1x6 boards can be cut with a miter saw.

    2. Step: 2

      Large 2be7c9c7 dea7 4596 9209 13600332fc7f

      Drill pocket holes in 3 of the 4 sides.

    3. Step: 3

      Large 4c155ac8 c772 487b be9b a2a482fcf45d

      When the 1x6 boards have been sanded you can assemble. Screw the 1x6s into the base creating the sides and the back. The 2 shorter pieces are the sides and the long piece is the back. If you want to stain this, you may consider making the joints mitered (45 degree) cuts.

    4. Step: 4

      Large 4e6faef1 6487 4b70 9c02 c60d38180aeb

      I didn't want any pocket hole visible so I chose to nail the corners together.

    5. Step: 5

      Large cd938503 61cd 4f51 bccc ff3c21340ef9

      Once it was all put together I painted it and added the 4" hairpin legs to the bottom.
