First you will need
a large drill bitt, 3 screws, a drill, a saw, a five gallon bucket, and some wood.

next you will need to cut your wood to fight the bucket you want it to cover 1/3 of the opening of the bucket.

then you will screw the bucket down to the board.

next you need to cut the remaining screw off with a saw. I used a saws all with a metal blade)

Nice job! How did you come up with the idea? That's cool!

I just use milk crates and covered cat litter boxes.

I had all the supplies so I just made it.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS THREAD WAS TO KEEP PEOPLE FROM BUYING $50 DOLLAR NEST BOXES.

it drives me insane when someone even thinks about droping more than 10 buck on nesting boxes. so I thought I would do my best to help others make as cheap a nesting box as possible.
