I used 18 mm thick untreated spruce glulam panels.
I cut mouldings from these panels and milled a 2 mm deep groove for the grate. Then, I milled the cavities for the overlapping ends and drilled holes for the magnets.
Now, I just had to cut the grate into shape and put the elements together and glue them.
This simple connection of the elements allows for easy assembling and dissembling for cleaning. Also, when the little rodents went on vacation, the cage was very easy to transport. It can be altered and extended whenever necessary.
Using the same connection system, other elements can be added, like a walk-through, a hideout, a hayrack, etc. Like when playing with Legos, there are not limits for your imagination.
Note from the supermagnete team: A similar small animal compound can be seen in our application Rabbit playpen.
