hi John! Any chance you could make the circumference a little bigger? If you can make one about 18" I'll order it right now! Please let me know! !!

Well a bit of a problem there. The SS rods I use come in 3ft lengths. When bent that’s the maximum circle I can make (12”). I can make them bigger but that would require a splice (weak spot) in the circle somewhere. I have to experiment a bit and see how it works.

I can make them bigger with SS cable but then they are not rigid enough to stay in a circle. It’s more like string and they would all floppy.

I used all my material making the existing ladders and boings. Have to collect more material first.

Ok. I just thought I'd ask. I wanted one for Milly, my new baby! If you can put one together just let me know and I'll grab it! Thanks John!

I am going to make a larger beefier version. Another aspect is that is only compresses a certain amount (and still bounce back to round) to get in a box. Much bigger box unfortunately. Wait for it.

The shipping is $20. Not too bad. :)
John,

Is that $20 CAD? if so send a send me a PayPal invoice and I'll pay asap, if not give me a month and I'll buy. I'm on a monthly toy budget :( as this month's overtime goes into the vet budget. Next month is toys.

Do you think the wood Is thick enough to drill a bolt so I can add hardware to use as a cage topper or could you it for an additional cost?

You can drill holes in the wood.

If you don’t hang it from the loops the ring is not that stiff. It’s rather springy. If you rest it on it’s bottom it will sag and if a bird lands on top of it they will slowly bend it flat. (Unless we’re talking Budgies) It’s really meant as a hanging boing. For what you want it would need a much heavier ring inside the wood.

yes the shipping is $20 CAD to Hawaii.

Received on Friday, a big Mahalo to @JLcribber for the fantastic work. Not too big or small, a perfect fit for my GCC Watson. A good fit for his cage and alternative to a ladder as everything must hang low in his cage due to his seizures.

We did some supervised play today outside of cage as he tends to panic when something new is put in his cage. I did not specify that I needed something suitable for a conure but he can comfortably grasp the rungs or just perch and relax.

John, once again Mahalo for your solid and well made creation.
