View Full Version : Bin Cage Shelf??

Sorry another thread... Well as you have guessed I am making a bin cage, I want to make a second level and was thinking of using a piece of wood... Can I just use a 'random' piece of wood?

http://www.hamstercentral.com/community/diy-do-yourself-hamster-projects/7992-how-add-another-level-cage.html this might help, its a bit easier than wood thats for sure.

well if the edges are smooth and you can attach it i don't see why not.
But you may want to use plasticoted wood, or plasticote it yourself to avoid it getting messy :)

But it may be too heavy for the plastic to support

Thanks Louise Thats brilliant! I have a spare box aswell, this just gets easier! (I say that before actually starting anything....) And thanks FM for the awesome info ;)

I suppose you could get a piece of wood and put somethin under it for a support !

another option is a free standing wooden shelf. Like the trixe guinea pig shelter or hamster steps

somebody here had the brilliant idea to use a cd-holder thing for extra levels...cant remember what the thread was called though
