    Question Safe woods

    I want to craft wood hides and hay racks for my piggies but I am wondering what woods are safe and what to avoid.

    Do not use pine or cedar.

    Can you use a nail gun to put a wood hay rack together or something else.

    I know nothing about tools and such, I probably wouldn't use glue unless it is nontoxic, and glue is flimsy and weak. I think nails would be hard for a gp to pull out, but if it gets to the sharp end by chewing it may hurt your pig. I personally would use a non toxic wood glue.
