Still such a necessity in our lives, this dog kennel is both a tabletop surface and home for our puppy. My husband made me one of these crates as a wedding present (he also surprised me with a puppy). Randy and I have actually wanted to build this crate since we got Basil as a very young puppy two years ago, but we could never bring ourselves to shell out the 100 dollars for the kreg jig (you cannot do this project without one… but you won’t regret buying it.
When purchasing the Kreg pocket hole screws, make sure to purchase coarse thread screws if you are using MDF or soft wood such as pine. If you do not have the tools to cut your own wood or if you don’t have any way to transport the large pieces of wood, they can cut them for you at the store. Find a flat, sturdy surface on which you can clamp down the Kreg Jig and the wood you are working with.
STEP 10: Screw the 23x 35” panel of ?” plywood onto the bottom of the crate using the ?” wood screws. The price tag on this dog crate end table seems a bit insane to me, but I like the contemporary design and multi-purpose use.
This DIY Contemporary Doghouse comes with a full step-by-step tutorial in case you want to make one for your pup. A dog bed nightstand is a great option for those who want to keep their pups close at night but don’t want to share their bed. If you want to go the DIY route, Ana White offers plans on how to build your own DIY Dog Kennel end table.
If you have a medium or large dog, a built-in dog crate under a cabinet or kitchen island might be a more practical option for you.
For the ultimate out-of-the-way dog crate, find an unused nook in the house to build a private room for your pet.


Yes, we built it just high enough to slide the crates easily in and out (a must for cleaning because we have long haired dogs). Not every home buyer would want a built-in- dog crate but I wouldn’t let it stop me from putting one in either. We brought the crate inside to see if the girls would like it and if the size would fit in our living room, with the intention of hauling it back to the garage for paint and finish.
Make sure that you place all of the pocket holes on the same side of the wood so that they will all be on the inside of the crate.
Whichever side has more dents or pits or any other flaws should be on the inside of the crate. Again, be sure not to screw too close to the edges of the plywood to prevent spitting the wood. Our brindle dog is 60 pounds and our other dog is 70 pounds, and they both fit in it just fine.
The steel makes it easy to clean and preempts any potential chewing (for doggies who might like to snack on wood furniture). This end table was custom built to fit over an existing crate, but if your pets are small you can achieve the same look with a standard table. The inside of the crate will look like swiss cheese so you may choose to fill the pocket holes in with wood filler, but it will not be visible from the outside so it doesn’t really matter. We had them cut all of the wood except for the 6” rails which I cut at home with a circular saw. This will be used to attach the 24”x36” Project Panel to the top of the crate seen in step 9.
Flip the assembled crate onto the project board on the ground and screw it on using all of the pocket holes we placed toward the top of the crate in previous steps.


This crate is usually covered with a polka dotted sheet or three so the doggies can sleep in the peace and dark while we’re away. This allowed us to use it to clamp down the wood without constantly having to remove it from the Kreg Jig. I’ve done some research and found that you really can have stylish dog crates that fit your decor. These will be used to attach the 24”x36” Project Panel to the top of the crate seen in step 9.
You can also go ahead and attach the hinges and the latch if you would like, but you may want to wait if you plan on painting the crate. Try to find where you will end up placing the crate in your house as this may help you decide which way you would like the crate door to open. If you find really nice unblemished pieces of wood, you can always stain it, or leave it be and seal it with a clear coat.
Also you need to consider the health risk that you expose your dog(s) to from the chemicals in the laundry room all day (detergent, dryer sheets, washing tabs etc).
These pocket holes will be used to attach the 24”x36” Project Panel to the top of the crate seen in step 9. Adapting Ana White’s wooden dog crate plans, Randy and I set out to change the focus of our living room.
This project cost us around 100 dollars, with the wood, screws, hinges, and latch, pretty much everything.
