use pressure treated lumber if you dont want to have to waterproof it yourself. I used plywood that i had left over in my garage it was very bad so dont use plywood.
fish line, string, wire anything of the like
nails or screws
hinge, preferably one of those little hinges with the spring built in so it stays open automatically, or just use a rubber band and a couple of screws to make it have the spring action.

so first things first you need to make the box. The way I like to do this is to first nail the two sides onto the bottom Aka nail through the bottom and into the side of the pieces of wood that make up the sides of the trap. Make sure to drill pilot holes before you nail or screw. I used three nails for each joint, one in the middle and one at each end. After you get both of the side onto the bottom its time to add the back. line the back up with the two sides and the bottom and nail it on.
