some very important points to consider when making
Always check the source of new material much of
what comes into the country as PLANTATION PLY is actually taken from Indonesian
rainforests. It would be a tragedy if by creating habitat for our wildlife we
were encouraging the destruction of others. Genuine plantation ply is available
as an Aust or a NZ product.
Front , back and base should be Aust.
hardwood if possible this can often be sourced as offcuts from timber
Paint should be non toxic Don't paint the
front of the box,use several coats on the lid,
On the inside of box put saw cuts or hardwood steps
Don't use wire for the ladder.
