Well it only took about six weeks, but we finally have a bunny pen sketch. DH started construction on the base already. Yippee!
I just need to decide on finish for the base. Although wood is not the best product to use in rabbit cage construction, we decided to make an exception as this is only the prototype and it is a more economical option. Cage construction has been slowed down by the el-cheapo j-clip pliers we bought at Tractor Supply. Nothing against TSC, the pliers are meant for small fix 'em ups, not huge cage construction. We should have ordered heavy duty pliers online, but to be honest, DH moved much quicker than anticipated. I was unprepared...
happy, but unprepared. BUNNYRABBIT.com is on vacation this week, so I'll have to figure something else out.
So construction will continue once I have some better pliers onhand. For now, I just have to figure out how to protect the base. Paint is the first step. Just have to work out the details with the rest.
