    My partner bought a Sun Conure for my birthday so I decided i would build him a cage. I wanted something that looked a bit more stylish than any cages I have seen in the shops and this is what i came up with. So what do you all think, I would love some feedback good or bad as i am relatively new to designing anything like this. Thanks in advance for any comments.

      Look very nice . . .

      Looks very nice . . .

      The only comment I have is about the expanded metal you used for the walls.

      Here in the states that stuff has razor sharp edges. I know parrots like to cling to the side of the cage, that has to be rough on their feet.

            Thanks for the feedback, the sharp edges were taken care of with a heck of a lot of filing. The reason i used the expanded metal was all the sguare and rectangle profile meshes just didn't seem to do the design any justice. I think it was definately worth the effort though.

                Very Nice work,

                Not sure if it was your intention or not but the first thing I thought of was a Pagoda. Awesome job on the design, I wish I was half that creative.

                  Thank you for the kind words, I am very pleased with the end result myself its good to see all the time and effort finally pay off, the design was based on the chinese garden lanterns, and the original paint job was reall copper with the oxidising patena on it. I was very dissapointed after painting it to find out it was very toxic for birds and then spent about 16 hours sandblasting it off. the hardest part was choosing another colour after picturing it in my head the whole time with copper on it.
                  Cheers Steve

                      Thanks Vernon, rolling the square stock on its edge was a bit tricky as it wanted to twist I had to machine a V into my roller and my bender dies to keep it from twisting. Thanks to everyone who took the time to comment it is always good to get some feedback good or bad.
                      Cheers,
                      Steve

                          Like all the other comments -- Great job. You have a nice skill at selecting (and constructing) pleasing lines. It flows very well and the attention to detail like the notches make it outstanding.
