This step by step diy woodworking project is about indoor rabbit hutch plans. Therefore, if you want to build a beautiful rabbit hutch for your home, we recommend you to pay attention to the instructions described in the article. Generally speaking, it is a better idea to build several of these sawhorses, as you will most certainly need several when building or cutting something.
Make sure you invest in high quality materials, such as pressure-treated lumber, cedar, pine or redwood. Take accurate measurements and use a professional saw to get the job done. Always align the components at both ends before drilling the pilot holes and inserting the galvanized screws, in order to prevent the wood from splitting. Use waterproof glue to reinforce the joints.

Indoor Rabbit Hutch Plans
The first step of the woodworking project is to base of the indoor rabbit house. As you can easily notice in the plans, we recommend you to build the frame out of 1×3 slats.
Cut the components at the right size and secure them together using 1 1/4″, after drilling pocket holes at both ends of the short components. Make sure the corners are square and add glue to the joints.
The next step of the woodworking project is to build the exterior walls of the rabbit hutch. As you can easily notice in the plans, we recommend you to mark the cut lines on the 3/4″ plywood sheets.
Top Tip: Smooth the cut edges with fine-grit sandpaper and remove the residues. In addition, drill starting lines and cut out the holes by using a jigsaw. Work with attention and invest in high quality materials.
Continue the woodworking project by attaching the exterior walls to the structure. Make sure you align everything with great care before drilling the pilot holes and inserting the 1 1/4″ screws. Add glue to the joints to create a rigid structure.
Make sure the corners are square and lock the adjacent walls together using 1 1/4′ screws. Place a level on top of the walls to check if they are perfectly horizontal.
Mark the cut lines on the piece of 3/4″ plywood and get the job done with a jigsaw. Smooth the cut edges with sandpaper and remove the residues with a vacuum cleaner. Work with attention and invest in high-quality materials.
Fit the partition to the rabbit house and drill pocket holes along the sides of the component. Make sure the corners are right-angled and secure the partition to the structure by using 1 1/4″ screws.
Next, you need to attach the top to the wooden structure. As you can easily notice in the project, we recommend you to attach the 3/4″ components to the top of the structure.
In order to get the job done in a professional manner, we recommend you secure the right component to the structure. In addition, secure the lid (the left side) to the fixed component, by using hinges.
In order to move the indoor hutch easily, we recommend you to install a nice handle to the woodworking project. As you can easily notice in the plans, we recommend you to build the supports out of 1×2 lumber and the handle out of 2×2 lumber (round lumber). Drill pilot holes through the components and secure them to the structure using 1 1/4′ screws.
One of the last steps of the woodworking project, is to attach the caster wheels to the bottom of the rabbit hutch. Work with attention and align all the components with great care, before inserting the screws through the wheels into the structure.
After assembling the wooden sawhorse we recommend you to check if the components are locked together properly. Insert the galvanized screws properly, making sure they are at the same level with the wooden surface.
Top Tip: Don’t forget to take a cover the components with paint, if you want to enhance the look of the rabbit hutch and to make it stand out. Use glue to lock the components into place.
