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.

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.
