So the first thing I needed to do was measure my dog bed. That way, I knew how big of a box I needed to build, and if you want to use this same dog, then I'll have an Amazon link down in the description so check it out, and once I knew all my measurements I moved over to the miter Saw and cut out my main pieces now, I'm using a 1 by 8 piece of walnut. But if you don't have that local to you, you could always use pine, Oh maple, whatever you want here, I'm at my table saw and I'm making what's called a rabbit on the bottom of the boards. It's just a recess that the bottom panel will sit into that way.
It's not visible. I've got a 3/16 inch piece of plywood, so that's about how big the recess is. Then I got my two side pieces and I use this pink candle it to mark the round over on the Front's of the side, so that way, there's no sharp corner. I just use my disk sander to smooth all that out. I wanted to include this weird piece of grain or bark towards the one front. You saw me cut that out earlier to attach my pieces together, I'm gonna use, glue and screws, but here I'm using my pocket hole, jig drill bit to make a recess.
That way, the screws sit below the surface of the wood so that I could come back later with a 3/8 inch dowel and plug that up. It's a really cool way to make high-end looking joints really quick and really easy. I just used these right angle clamps from Rocker to hold everything square. Then I could screw it all together and that's gonna hold everything while the glue dries once the glue dries combined with the screws.
These are gonna, be really really strong joints and, once I had my dowels in I used what's called a Japanese pull, saw to cut them all flush I'll, have a link in the description and then the last thing I had to do was plug up the little holes On the in from the rabbit joints that I made earlier, then I could move back to the table, saw and cut my 3/16 inch plywood to size. I just added a bunch of glue to that recess. Then I could drop in my panel. While I let the glue dry, I added some nails to hold everything really securely and by the time I had all that finished.
