60 years of relocating animals to 45 countries. Made all the containers myself from single hippo crates to triple deck pig pens for aircraft and ships. This small picture is of a turtle container for transport from Canadian Winter to warm Southern USA.

What ho Chaps! Thanks for the welcome. Always impressed by everyone else’s work. Wish I could do as well. My carpentry may not be as artistic, but it has to be creative to make suitable containers for any animal, to meet international standards, wood packaging regulations, airline specifications, international legislation and welfare rules. What really interests me in this site is to see others’ workshops, jigs, and methods of work.
