I live in a small apartment with a small dog.  I'd seen those space-saving kennel/table combos in magazines but they were always really expensive.  As a big Christmas surprise, my dad actually made me one himself.

Now Craftster isn't really his thing, but the table turned out so awesome that I (finally) had to show it off for him.



The windows are on both side and on the door.  They're actually finished on the inside as well.



The top is really pretty big, which is awesome because I do everything here.  And I just noticed all the dog toys and recently killed dog toy stuffing laying around.  Cleaning might be on the agenda for today  Wink



And the little windowed door.  It's hinged on the inside.



Here's a bad shot of the inside.  Those would be teeth and scratchmarks.  It's pretty rare that she scratches it, but maintenance guys coming in don't make her happy.  I was worried about splinters, but she hasn't had any.  And she actually really likes the kennel.  She gets pretty mad if the door is closed and she can't get in.  She wasn't sure of it at first, but once she realised it was hers she was all about it.



And the action shot.  Here's the Beast enjoying her kennel.  Even with the grumpy please-don't-take-my-picture face, she's so freaking cute.

Thanks for looking and let me know what you think!

This rocks!  Where did you ever come up with this idea?  I don't have a dog, but if I did, I would copy your idea in a hot second!  Those plastic kennels are so dang ugly, but this is a fine piece of furniture.  Thanks for sharing!

Way to go, Dad!  Your father definitely has some skills; this is much nicer than the ones in the catalogs.  You and are dog are very lucky.

Fantastic!!  The hubby and I are about to buy a house, and I think this would be an AWESOME space-saver once we're settled...
