DIY Rabbit Hutch











From Charles Jennings,

Project took about $125 in material cost. All of the wood to wood areas were joined with glue along with a kreg pocket jig as to not screw into the grain. I used outdoor screws with torx heads and I used a metal roof as a cheaper alternative than buying a roll of tar backing and bag of shingles. I put a bead of silicone where I layered the roofing sheets and also over the screws.

Tools Used:
Impact Driver
Drill Driver
Miter Saw
Circular Saw
Angle Grinder for Roofing
Reciprocating Saw

I ordered the exact amount of 1x4x8 but came out with too many by 3 or 4 pcs. I am going to cut a half crescent in the side where there is no access for cleaning purposes.

I took lots of breaks during my first day for family time. I spent probably 10 hours split between two Saturdays making this. I just do woodworking as a hobby but more of a necessity around the house.

Thank you for sharing, Charles! Your rabbit hutch turned out very nice. I really, really appreciate you taking the time to take all the pics and share the valuable insight regarding the project. I apologize for the extra materials you bought and I will update the cut list. Looking forward to seeing your next projects!

No problem. I need the 1X4’s for a mud room bench I am building. Maybe I was just extra conservative on my cuts and thats why I came out with more!
