Hayrack Mini 2020

How it started…

Hayrack Mini was designed as a simple hayrack for one bunny in a cage setup where space is limited, or as a secondary hayrack for feeding different types of hay or at another location.

Some changes are made based on feedback from members to simplified it further. All woods are from IKEA as usual.

Next Generation Hayrack using IKEA IVAR Pine Shelf


Ever since IKEA stopped selling the RAST Bedside Table in 2018, I have been cracking my head to find a suitable replacement as the main material to DIY a new series of Hayracks for our bunnies….

There are many suggestions from our members to get them from various sources, however, many factors would first need to be considered before I can finalized on the one to go ahead with…

First of all, the wood must be bunny safe! Not only the type of wood, but also the way the wood are processed, whether coated with chemicals to protect from insects such as termites, and also if any wood glues are used. are they bunny safe too…

Next is the size of the material, and also if the wood needs further preparation such as sawing and sanding… If it is one big piece of raw material, I would need a big machine to cut them to various sizes, and if lots of sanding are required, then I would not be able to do it in my bedroom… Of coz, I can look for suppliers that can supply in certain suitable sizes, but without volumes, pricing will not be that great after-all, and I definitely have no space to stock up big quantities at home…

Finally, costs will be the greatest consideration if I want to keep the hayrack within reasonable price range… and these will also depends on the other overheads like the man-hours needed to prepare the material and if I had to pay rental to store it somewhere or even find a workshop to do all these…

So finally after all these consideration, I have chosen to work with the new IKEA IVAR Pine Shelf 80×30 cm, and come out with these various models for a start… Using this IVAR Pine Shelf, I can keep the design as near to the ones using the RAST Bedside Table with minimum work, which also translate to manpower cost, known quality of the wood which is safe for our bunnies, and one plus point is that I can now make a longer Hayrack if necessary, like a 6 holes hayrack if some members requested for it…

However, the down side is that the costs is still slightly more than doubled compared to RAST Bedside Table, which is really very low price in the first place! Therefore, I will have to adjust the pricing of each models accordingly to cover the higher costs…

Bunny Hayracks – Wooden – 2015

Hay is easily the most important diet for our bunnies… however, feeding it to them is always a challenge. The challenge of keeping the hay clean, minimizing wastage and at the same time encouraging them to eat more.

Personally, I preferred a wooden setting for my bedroom… and that’s why I try to DIY for them a wooden enclosure with wooden hayrack and anything wooden that I can think of…. :p

Bunny Enclosure February 2015

This is my Bunny Enclosure Project in February 2015 for Creamy & Cookies, making use of IKEA IVAR Shelving System to build a two level enclosure on the ground level, as well as maximizing the vertical space for other storage requirements…

This enclosure make use of 2 units of IVAR Shelving at 80×50 cm each, with another extended fence area of 80x50cm, and a second level of 80x30cm x 2… giving more area for my bunnies to run and jump around when the enclosure is closed. 

The enclosure can be opened up easily for cleaning and also for my bunnies to run around freely in my bedroom. The foldable wooden fence made it more space effective and can be deployed as the requirement changes..
