Design of the Week

This week design is an idea I had for a dog bed. My dogs like soft things to sleep on, now the dog bed pillow works for me and the dogs but my wife wants something that would fit the rest of the furniture in the living room. and well if I have to build a bed for the dogs I may as well a exercise in wood joinery and use a nice piece of wood to do it with. So here is what I came up with. it will have fabric or maybe 2" webbing stretched between the four round dowels.  let me know what you think this just my first draft. 

Have a great day
Joey

Jackm used dowels for the sides too.

I read Peg's and Tails, but I have been so busy lately with canning I am behind on my reading, so I didn't see his story. Great looking dog bed something similar to what I am planning. Funny thing is I have two Jack Russell's also. Thanks for sharing I will be sure to read his post I really like the idea of wheels, but knowing my dogs they would be pushing it through the house chasing each other.
