Barnwood Crate & Company is a family owned business located in Louisville, Ky.  My wife and I were tired of the old plastic and wire crates.  We thought that our pups deserved much better!  We dreamed of being able to replace those old crates with a beautiful piece of furniture that would also serve pet needs.  After getting permission from my wife, I began to make that dream a reality for our home.

After building our own crate, it didn't take long for the word to spread throughout our friends and family about what we had created.  Soon after, we started getting requests from them that they wanted their own.  

And with that, Barnwood Crate & Company was born.


 We wanted to offer better quality crates that are also beautiful!  We start by using materials that are stronger and more heavy duty than what is used in most crates on the market.  Starting with true 5/4 inch thick poplar Kentucky barn wood,  we mill each piece in our shop, leaving the rough saw cuts exposed in the wood.  The top and back of the kennels are 3/4 inch pine v-groove.  The bars are 1/2 inch rebar that is set in our 5/4 barn wood.  Every crate is hand made and finished in our shop by our team of skilled carpenters and painters.    

We have standard sizes with many options and finishes for you to choose from.  However, we love custom orders.  If you can dream it up, we can build it and finish it!  Please contact us if you are interested in a custom order or have any questions.  We would love to help you come up with a design that best suits your needs or navigate our website and options.  Our contact info is below, feel free to email, call, text, etc.


You can also come by our showroom (appointment only at this time) at 2014 New Main St. Louisville, Ky. 40206.  Come by and check out what we have in stock, go over design ideas, or bring in your pups to try out different crates.    

Thanks for visiting,

Roy and Toni.
