So recently I've been working on re-making my birds favorite toy that has been discontinued in every store I've looked at and I'm trying to figure out what wood types would be best to use. I'll include an image of the toy that I'm recreating so you can all get a better idea of what it looks like and what woods might be best for different sections of the toy. I did some research and was only really able to find lists of bird-safe woods, but not people's opinions on the BEST woods to use for toys. I'm just not sure which wood I should go with (softer vs harder, wood that doesn't splinter as easily, etc). Basically, I'm coming to you guys to see if you have any opinions on the best wood for the body of the dino and the best wood for the leg pieces. Also, what kind of rope should I be using? I've heard bad things about softer ropes, but my bird absolutely loves the soft rope. He finds it the most comforting and he's never eaten it and I try to keep the strands on the edges that fray out short enough that they wouldn't be able to wrap around his toes or anything. Any opinions would be appreciated, thank you!
