Make a wood Easter basket with bunny ears and tail!
Scrap 1/2" thick plywood
1x6 boards or fence pickets (total of 28" used)
scrap 1/4" plywood for bottom
1-1/4" staples (can also use nails)
1 - 1/2" plywood piece @14-1/2" x 8" (bunny face)
1 - 1/2" plywood piece @ 9" x 8"
2 - 5-1/2" wide fence pickets @ 14" long
Cut bottom to fit out of 1/4" plywood (approx 8" x 15")
Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
Trace out the patterns for the bunny face and back on to the 1/2" plywood and cut out with a jigsaw.
Use 1-1/4" staples to attach the face and back to the sides with glue.
Attach bottom with glue and staples to sides and front. Add handle.
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
