Default Cradle swing DIY

So my Mother and Brother just came back yesterday from Philippines and they bought along a coconut. And what i decided to its shell is this. By making a hole in all 4 corners (sorry that one in the center is natural) then I will put a rope and after that fixing it with a carabiner
Do you guys like it? Ill post again when the product is finished

That looks great however I'm concerned that this will encourage your bird/birds to breed as it resembles a nice place to nest.

What have you used to clean it to ensure it's safe to go in the cage?
Do you any females that will be using it as I agree with iHeartPieds that this could encourage breeding behaviour. It might be something you keep for out of cage time if you do have a female.

They're bit afraid to go in or touch. The shell is shallow so I think It won't encourage them to breed and if some signs I see I will get it out asap

I washed it thoroughly with vinegar but before that I cleaned it with sandpaper so there are no risks with splinters
