I was asked to make some bunny hutches for a friend. I wanted to make them as well as I could which led me to over engineer a little. The boxes are western cedar for a non toxic cage but rot resistant and the bases are pressure treated. I loosely used plans from Stan Sullivan Simply Easy DIY. It was pretty easy but the most fun woodworking were the handles. I laminated cedar and white oak due to rot resistances of both woods.

Nice looking hutches , It reminds of some that I built a few years ago.
I had a lot of fun building them, But not so much fun hauling them 300 miles up north

You’re right. I struggled a lot with the cost. I didn’t charge for my time but the wood was up there. I gave the lady I made them for every chance to back out and I could have used spruce boards, none coated wire etc. but she didn’t balk at the cost.

THANKS EVERYONE FOR THE KIND WORDS. IT WAS JUST GLUE AND SCREW BUT AGAIN THE FUN FOR ME WAS THE HANDLES
