"The picture can't do your dog crate justice; it is so much better looking "live". I could not be happier with everything!! The crate is simply spectacular!!!! Thanks so much for a wonderful transaction from start to finish."  Wayde G.


"What they say about a picture being worth a thousand words would definitely apply here;  It would take more than a thousand words to describe the extremely high level of execution in every way. 

The mahogany is stunning- really furniture quality, and unquestionably its beauty has been brought out by the manner in which it has been treated.  Clearly it has been made by someone who loves wood, and who is masterful at knowing how to process it. On top of that, the  manner in which the crate has been put together- the execution, the attention paid to detail- is as polished as any maker of fine furniture. Not to mention that the beauty of the top, a solid piece of mahogany, is amazing.

We couldn’t be more thrilled with this piece. We’re also extremely grateful for your participation in working out the fine details of design."  Hugh G.

How Our Custom Dog Crates Are Made

With a long history manufacturing fine furniture, the attention to detail and quality shows in each and every dog crate purchased from Plum Shade Farm.

The crates are made of solid Ash or Mahogany, no pressed composites or veneers.  This ensures that your Plum Shade Farm custom dog crate is sturdy & durable to provide a lifetime of beauty.
Ash is a dense hardwood similar to Red Oak. Mahogany is among the most beautiful and valuable wood species in the world. Known for its unique pink coloring, it develops into a deep reddish-brown as it ages. Mahogany wood is virtually knot and void free, giving the wood a smooth, even grain pattern, which makes it ideal for fine furnishings.

All of the wood arrives in full thickness with a moisture content of 6-8%. These are the identical specifications used for making fine quality furniture. The wood for Plum Shade Farm crates is taken through various milling procedures until it is finished to 13/16"..... thicker than most other manufacturers.  And unlike most others, "mortise and tenon" joinery is used for superior strength and a stronger joint, to create a piece of furniture that will last for many, many years.

 Custom manufacturing with strict quality control makes each    part perfect for a perfect fit when assembling.  Our crates      are finished by hand wiping with your choice of water-base    stain. Stain application is followed by 3 coats of water-base  polyurethane, carefully hand sanded between each coat.


Floors are made of furniture grade melamine, easy to wash &  keep clean. If spills or accidents occur, your beautiful crate will not be ruined.

Each crate includes solid brass hardware and beautiful brass latches, plus an engravable brass plate.You can select custom hardware -- oil rubbed bronze or brushed nickel.

Our crates are Made in the USA. Your crate won't leave the shop unless it is perfect. When you buy a custom dog crate from Plum Shade Farm, you know you are getting a quality piece of furniture that you and your dog will love.

Tops of crates have approx a 1" 'overhang'.  Slats are 1" with approximately 2" in between each slat.  Make sure you acclimate your dog to the crate or puppy proof the crate to prevent damage (ask us for more info.) ....although we do also sell slat replacement kits :>)

Mahogany is a truly beautiful wood and does not require stain.  Our most popular stains for our ash crates are espresso, cherry, medium walnut and natural (shown below).

Other stains are also available (see below), so you can create whatever look you want to complement your decor.

Your crate color can also be custom matched to whatever color you choose if you send a sample.
