Default Wooden Double Breeding Cage

I wanted to build a 4x4x7 feet wooden flight cage for my budgies

Without any knowledge and experience I was not confident so started researching. After gathering as much information as I can, decided to build a double breeding cage first to have the confidence and experience to do that

So here is the wooden double breeding cage

Wood (I have lengths of 8 feet x 3.5 inches x 1.5 inches and 4 feet x 3.5 inches x 1.5 inches)





Tools, Screw and Nails I use





Sketch for working and calculations



Dimension = 24x18x48 inches

Dimension of each breeding section = 24x18x20 inches

Gap between sections for tray = 2 inches

Size of frame of Door = 7x9 inches

Size of Door = 6.5x8.5 inches (0.25 inch gap on each side)


Required Cutting of Wood (4 feet x 0.75 inches x 0.75 inches) machine work not mine

[IMG][/IMG]

Cut these to required lengths for basic frame
48” 4pcs
22.5” 10pcs
18.5” 2pcs
16.5” 14pcs
7” 6pcs
6.5” 4pcs


Basic frame (screwed together by 2 inch screw after drilling)



Mash Installation



That's how use the nails to attach mash



Wooden Framing (to cover the sharp ends of mash cut this 8 feet 0.75 inch x 0.20 inch to required lengths)



Showing sharp edges of mash



Frame covering the mash



Finally front view



Side and back view



Metal trays will arrive after 5 days I am too much excited to share so could not wait for that long
