    Pottery Barn Dog Bed

    A friend of mine is a huge Pottery Barn Furniture fan. She has a bed called the Sumatra.



    Tonight her husband and I tried to copy the design for a Dog bed for her two "boys". Her weimaraner dogs are her kids.

    Here was the result. The bed is "distressed". We used recovered barn wood and found some natural distress marks from bugs and time. We used Kreg jigs for the assembly. We based the size off the bed off the dog bed foam pads they buy from tractor supply.

    When we gave it to my friend's wife she started to cry. She really loved it. Dogs love it too.

    Very cool, Mike. Will the two dogs sleep together on it?

    We've got two separate dog beds for our pair, because the smaller one (the female...a real biatch in all senses of the term) is pretty territorial. Wherever she is, she doesn't want the other one. Even if she happens to be in his bed.

    Mike,

    Great job on scaling down the full size design!

    Questing for you: is there any thing supporting the ply wood (that the cusion sits on) besides the dados in the side rails? A pict of the bottom would be cool, if there is some additional supports that we can't see from your pictures.

    Pretty cool, neat idea, although we sometimes forget that our pets are ANIMALS...

    Yours might be, but mine are just fuzzy children. Just ask LOML.
