Well That's Just Crate!

When I first introduced you to Percy, I left you with this photo of our unfinished dog crate.

What I had left to do was to create a top for it, and then STAIN!.


It's finished!

To create the top, I took a beautiful piece of Purebond Plywood in birch, and added a "lip" out of 1x2s that would fit snugly into the top of the crate, so that it'll stay in place but be easily removed for transport.

The same thing is going to happen with a bottom. Eventually. Except I'll also line it with some vinyl flooring that the previous owners of the house had left. Waterproof AND stylish.

Lucky pup...

So far, Mr. Percy isn't too thrilled with the crate, but I'm sure he'll grow to love it... In time..

Baby Goats will give it the attention it needs, 'til then!
