You’ll need a plastic drum (or half of one to be precise), a slow feeder hay-net (you can get them at your local equestrian retailer or stock-feed store – we get ours from Bio-John Equine and Pet Superstore), a drill, some scissors and either a jigsaw or a handsaw.
Start by cutting your drum in half (if it isn’t already). You can do this by drilling a hole in it at the level you would like to cut, inserting your jigsaw and cutting your way around. Alternatively a handsaw works equally as well.
Next step – you’ll need to cut the top/bottom out of it. This can be achieved by using the jigsaw as above, or if you’re clever with a knife you can get it started this way and finish off with the handsaw. Either way, we aren’t aiming for any amputations in the process – so be careful to keep your fingers out the way and perhaps wear gloves.
