Making A Cat House / Pet Bed

In this video I make a cat house pet bed type thing. Actually, I made three! And they're for sale on my Etsy store. You can also get plans and a cut list via my Patreon page or Etsy.

Making A Cat Radiator Bed

In this video I make a wooden cat radiator bed out of some offcuts of mahogany.

Making A Large Dog Bed

In this video I'm going to be making a large dog bed as a commission for a client.  

It's going to be based on a design I've made previously on my channel, but with a number of improvements.

Wooden Dog Beds - Mid Century Modern

In this video I'm going to be making some dog beds using some oak veneered MDF left over from the radio studio desks commission I did recently.
A lot of the dog beds you can buy tend to look a bit cheap and nasty, so the idea I had was to make something that looked more like a piece of furniture that will look good in someone's home.  
I wanted to design something with a mid century modern feel mainly because that'd the style of furniture that I like. 

Making Cat Or Dog Bunk Beds

Recently I found some pine bed slats and a broken double bed frame, and in this video I'm going to be making some bunk beds for cats or smallish dogs.  
I previously designed and made some single versions of these beds which was an earlier video on my channel.
The slats had some straps attached with staples so the first job was to get those off
And I removed all the metal fittings.  

Making Pet Beds

In this video I make some miniature beds for cats and dogs or other small pets out of some reclaimed pine bed slats.

Making A Cat Scratching Post Using Pallet Wood And Concrete

I made the mistake of buying a cat scratching post that was too small for my cat to use comfortably... So I gave it away (to someone with a kitten) and thought I'd make one for my cat, Dylan.

For materials, I used a pallet that I found in my recent "how to get wood for free" video.  I'd use the stringers to make the post, and the slats to make the base.  I dismantled and de-nailed the pallet using a crowbar.

Making A Cat House For Two Using Scraps Of Wood

In this video, my brother Alan visits my workshop bringing with him some scraps of sheet materials found in his shed - some pieces of various sizes of MDF, ply and chipboard.

Alan wanted a cat house for his two cats George & Jasper, and he already had an idea for the design he wanted, so we first did a quick drawing in SketchUp to figure out how to make best use of the materials that we had to create that design.

Hexagon Cat House - pallet wood project

I had lots of small offcuts of pallet wood left over from the pallet wood shed build that I wanted to find a use for;  

I came up with a design for a cat house / bed that was hexagon shaped.  I cut all the pieces to make the walls of the house to length, cutting a 30 degree angle on each end to form the hexagon shape.  

I used a block plane to put a bevel on each piece, as I thought this would make it look nicer.  Then I glued up the hexagon pieces in individual layers, using upright pieces to support the structure and brad nails to hold everything together.
