I used the project as shown except that I changed the door. Our pups love a more cozy environment and so I made the panel on the door from leftover 1/4" plywood, and I used a doggie bone and puppy cookie cutter and traced the outline of the shapes and then cut them out with a jigsaw. I used Whiteboard from Lowes, and with stain, screws, materials the total cost was about $90. Doggie biz downtown wanted $800 for one like this. One comment about the Kreg Jig, Best Money Ever Spent!

I'm glad you liked it. I think I'm going to play with some of the other ideas for small changes, such as a 4 foot one that will open from the side and not the end. I'll post it when I get it built.
Thanks again
