    I did one today. Get an old wardrobe or cupboard, then cut a hole in the door and cover it with wire. Job is done. Cost is nothing. I did use a fridge shelf (the grill type) this time instead of wire.

    looks like this but not as much work

    yep, if you want to build wooden box with a door in it, starting with a wooden box that has a door in it is a great start. It's hilarious what you can come up with when you put your mind to the task of avoiding work for yourself.

    People try to get rid off furniture and whitegoods all the time, they pay for other people to take it away. Some places you have to pay to dump it. So a free drop off at your house is a godsend to many people. too easy 8^)

    To build a well insulted hutch with a lovely easy access door, yeah, a fridge is the place to start. Hilariously smart.
