What you need

- 1 glued wood panel, standard pine (80 x 30 cm x 1.8 cm)

Let's start - step by step
Start cutting out the bunny
What you need: cordless jigsaw
Next fix the wood panel to the workbench using screw clamps and then use a cordless jigsaw and a curve-cutting saw blade to cleanly cut out the bunny. Then cut the rod to a desired length, we cut ours too 14cm.
A tip for those who also want to cut out the wheels themselves: Simply cut the wheels out of the scrap wood using a holesaw accessory (6 cm diameter) and then sand them thoroughly.
Get a smooth finish
What you need: multi-sander
Now to sand down the cut out bunny with a multi-sander to achieve to a smooth finish.
Fitting the wheels
What you need: wooden wheels, eyebolt with wood thread, cord
Nearly there! Drill holes into the feet and wheels using a 8mm drill bit and then slide the rods through both holes. Next attach the wooden wheels onto the rods and screw an eyebolt with a wooden thread into the front axle. Then lastly attach a cord to the bunny as a leash and you're done.
