Thank you for the kind words. It is a variation of one that I saw on this site. It was a lot easier to do when I had the idea of using the tie-wraps.

Welcome to talk budgies Sandy...
That is awesome...I do have one caution though. Make sure the cut ends of the ty raps are not sharp enough to cut or pointed enough to puncture...

Default Tie-wraps

Thanks for the comment, Randy.
I tried to cut the ends of the tie-wraps as close-down as I could (kind of hard to describe). I use a wire-cutter to cut them. Then, when I was all finished, I turned the whole thing over, so the "ends" of tie-wraps are on the bottom side.

Hi Randy,

I was thinking some more about your comment. One way to surely avoid problems with the tie-wraps would be to wrap each joint with little pieces of sisal.

Cool Kind of rope that I used

Hi Sarah,

I used 1/4" sisal, which I bought at the hardware store. That was before I read the comment on this site about not using hardware store rope because it may be "oiled".
