View Full Version : Pecil box ladder

05-14-04, 07:00 am
I was looking through the pictures last night and found the cage that I really want to build. I have it saved over on another computer so I can't recall who made it . It had a staircase made out of plastic pencil boxes up to the second level.

Has anyone else seen this and have suggestions on how it was done? Were they superglued together? Holes drilled and then cable tied together?

I don't have my piggies yet, they are not even born but I am working on making their cage now...already found coroplast locally for $12!

I asked the person who made the cage, the stairs are made from pencil boxes that have holes drilled in and then cable tied together. I just made my cage, gotta work on the stairs now but since I have no piggies yet, I have time to get it right.

That's really neat, good luck!

I'm getting really excited about guinea pigs, I think I might get some. My friend breeds them and has 3 little munchkins and they are irresistable, I caught my self sneaking one home with me (j/k :P). Anyway, I think I'm gunna get them.
