Not exactly fine woodworking, but a fun project for the kids.
Constructed from SPF 2x and pine 1x. Pre-stained, leaving the joined areas bare, TB 3 applied with 12p nails. 1/2 galvanized wire applied with pneumatically driven 1” crown staples. Nesting box has solid pine floor. All inside exposed wood finished with shellac (non-poisonous). Roof is cedar shakes over a 1x frame.
I finished this a month ago, but we kept the bunnies in the basement while they were still tiny and it was sub-zero out.
Today is a the big day for migrating out of doors… And I reclaim the basement :^)
Lots of good advice over at rabbittalk.com if your going to have bunnies for pets, or raise them for “other purposes”.
Thanks for looking.
