    Smile Latest project

    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.

    Smile 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.

    Real nice bird cage.
    I'll bet pet shops could sell them.
    Good Luck,

    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.
