Training basket /normal basket
I will try and muster something up , if not will buy the foldable baskets .as I need to buy a few things to complete the loft
I made two of these hampers. I agree with j.mccall. It is easier to lift and carry two smaller boxes than one big one.
These were made out of a couple of small sheets of 3mm MDF, and a few metres of dressed pine.
The most expensive bits were the aluminium rod, the paint, and the hinges and bolts.
I do not like open topped hampers. Birds instinctively try to fly upwards, and open tops stress them.
As I explained it to a bloke, I wouldn't be sending my race horse to Epsom in a cattle truck.
They look the buisnesses mate 👍
There nice Muzza
They look smart Murray
Bought my baskets off the site
Thank you for the link seem good for the job
@mizmo Not going to look as pro as those mizmo, but being the total cheapskate I just bought a couple of these for £8.40 each
I figured I could cut out holes for external feeder/water and fix a light ply top on, solid bases so stackable, and plastic so can pressure wash them off maybe. I'll put up a picture when I get it done 🙂
@saul haha, if it does the job and it's cheap why not . I've managed to get me some baskets now .so I wont need to get anymore. If I do, will prob do a cheap method like that
Here's how mine turned out, £10 training basket. Hank is going for a training trip
Well done Saul. Should be fine for what you want.
Just the job!
