General Instructions

Drill Pocket Holes

There is not way around it on this one – you gotta have a Kreg Jig™. Drill all pocket holes first.

Step 1

Build Side Railings

Build the side railings as shown above. Use 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws and glue.

Step 2

Sides

Finish building the sides as shown above. Use 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws and glue.

Step 3

Plywood Sides

Add the plywood to the sides as shown above. Use 7/8″ screws and wood glue.

Step 4

End

Build the end as shown above. Use 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws and glue.

Step 5

Plywood for End

Now add the plywood. Use 7/8″ or shorter screws and glue.

Step 6

Door

The door should be a piece of cake. Just mark and screw together with 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws and glue.

Step 7

Door Frame

Build the door frame with 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws and glue.

Step 8

Door Hinges

Why not add the hinges while it’s easy? We did, and the hinges were much easier to install this way. I also installed the latch.

Step 9

Assembly

So you have really just built four walls. Now assemble the walls! I highly recommend finishing the walls separately first – then you can easily assemble and reassemble the crate as needed. Another idea – use corner brackets to screw the walls together from the inside. Then you can break the crate down to flat pieces for storage and travel.

I filled all the pocket holes with wood filler three times and let dry. Then sanded with 120 grit sandpaper. Still need to paint

Top and Bottom

Screw the project panel to the top. We choose to leave the bottom off (our dogs are house broken) but you could use some of the leftover 1/4″ plywood to make a bottom for the kennel. Simply line with plexiglass for a waterproof bottom.
