Transform a side table into a boxed enclosure for your dog, making it a multi-functional piece of furniture. On the frontside, a "doggy door" is cut open to allow your pup to come and go as he pleases.
This idea comes from our friend Kara Whitten of ;A Kailo Chic Life. In this project, we recommend three different hand tools: a jig saw, a miter saw, and a circular saw (or Dremel saw max). The saws all have different uses. "The saw max, which is basically a small circular saw, is good for cutting long boards down into geometric shapes like the rectangles for this project," Whitten explains. "The jig saw is good for cutting out shapes like circles or shapes that need to be more precise like the dog house door. And the miter saw is good for making angled cuts on trim wood."
