These are the tables I made from the plans on your website. I also made this table I posted here. I am planning on building the entertainment center as well, even though I just built one of my own design.

On the end tables I changed the way the door opened. Instead of having the door stop before it reached the other side of the table (which left a gap) I had the boards continue all the way and interlace with the other side.  Just like the hinge side.  Also I installed a extra row of 2" spacers to the side of the table to act like a stopper for the door.

We built this last summer before we moved. You can see it with our Alcove Shelf below, where we had it at our old house. If I recall correctly, this was one of the easier things we've built. So much fun!

This turned out really well. With some black stain, it matches my other furniture really well. I hope to have time to use more of your plans in the near future. Next project is a sideboard!

On the coffee table I installed an extra row of 2" spacers down the center of the table top.  On the legs I laced an inside leg to create a T shaped leg.  Also I added 2 shelves under the table to hold remotes.  Lastly, the legs are removable.  I used 4  1/2" threaded rod, like the hinges on the end tables.  The reason for this is that it weighed way to much to move.  I also only made the table about 30"x51" instead of 35 1/4"x51".

Here are pictures of the day bed/futon we made from your plans. We have two cats and one dog in our townhome so finding furniture they can't destroy is a challenge. I started looking for a futon, but couldn't find one of the quality or style I liked. When I can across your plans I knew we had to make this for our living room. My husband built it in one day and I painted it. He made it using studs from Lowes and for the bottom he attached plywood over the slats for more support.

We went to the mattress store and bought a high quality futon mattress with a cover that can be removed and washed. I also keep a fitted sheet on the top for the pets. It looks great, and I can always sand it down and repaint if need be. Another good thing about it is that it can easily be used as a bed when needed.

Thank you for the pet friendly furniture!!!
