    Pics of homemade play stand

    Gday all, I just thought I'd put up a few pics of my newly completed play stand/perch.

    I should have taken some pics at different stages of construction but didnt think of that till I was done.

    The larger pieces were joined with a dowel, the smaller ones with stainless screw, countersunk deep into the wood. The sisal rope used to lash the joins together are just for decoration, and to cover the countersunk screws and dowel. The glue used in the dowel joint was non toxic PVA glue.

    The base was the most expensive part. I bought it from Bunnings (Hardware store). Its a fold out umbrella stand.

    So far he seems to like it. I am going to give him a little bit of time to get used to it before I cover it in toys. I have already made a sisal net to hang off one side, many more to come! :P

    some pics...







    Looks happy

    Very nice stand. I love the natural branches. He looks like he loves it already.
