Dog Crate / End Table

Submitted by kristine on Sun, 08/26/2012 - 15:46

The husband and I have been very inspired by the awesome women (and men) on this site that have created their own pieces of furniture. They all look so amazing! So the husband wanted to give it a shot and try creating this dog crate / end table as his first ever project. Now mind you, he hasn't done any sort of woodworking since wood shop class in high school... and that was at least a decade ago.

I have to say that I'm quite proud of the hubby's first finished project! Although, he did mess up a bit with the table top being an inch too short width wise. I really didn't want him to create another one because that would mean I would have to stain another one and I really REALLY do not want to stain again! So we compromised and ended up gluing a thin wood trim on the side end of the table top to cover up the mistake.
