Hi everybody! I'm wanting to build a custom hidey house for my piggies. What are woods that are safe to use? I currently have plywood made of pine, is that safe? If not, what are suggested types of wood to use?

Plywood is glued together, and the glues aren't safe for ingestion.

Wood hideys get nasty very quickly. Just so you know.

Thanks! Good to know! What are some woods I CAN use? Will any of these work: Kiln-dried pine, poplar, willow, aspen, or maple?
