I wouldn't use Home Depot wood to build a dog house. At every Home Depot 
here the wood is crooked, wet, cracked, knotted, torn, and otherwise 
substandard. I was disappointed when this stand was delivered and they 
had obviously used Home Depot wood to make it. A lot of wood putty later 
I have a relatively smooth finish in most places.
