Whats missing? The pictures and directions are here in this thread.

Is there a particular question you have?

Send the first class tickets to me, and book me the presidential suite. I can be there next week. tongue.gif


laugh.gif laugh.gif Actually, I am going to try it myself(with help of course!) I like the design and they don't take up a ton of room....you could market these and sell them on eBay! GJ!! (LOL, not enough blood in the alcohol system!)

I'm definately thinking about it...but having a garage sale this weekend so I am pre-occupied but will post after I make one. I need something for Mkh to play on in the living room.

My husband is a carpenter so this should be easy for him. He's going to be so thrilled that I am yet again giving him a project! biggrin.gif

um I know this is an older thread, but wow. Great trees!

I have the basic tree part done, and am going out today or tomorrow to get the hardware to hang toys.

I don't know if Yogi will be happy to be so spoiled, or terrified at the prospect of more new things to have to get used to.

Will post a pic after I've finished <grin>.

Here is my somewhat clumsy attempt at UZ's bird tree lol.

Thankfully, Yogi is easy to please and was playing on it within minutes. Um..he was actually more interested in the dish when he realized there was food in it.

What a sweet guy.. made me feel good to see he liked it, and the toys I made. Going to save a lot of money on toys heheh.

Only a week and I love the little guy wub.gif

This may seem a bit dumb but where do people buy dowel rods...I have looked at all the home type stores (menards lowes home depot) I swear they used to stock them but I cant for the life of me find any.

Our Lowes has them but you can get them at places like Joannes fabrics and Michaels stores as well. Make sure you get different sizes to keep the feet exercised

You did an excellent job for your first try! smile.gif My first couple weren't fit for the fireplace. unsure.gif

I'm glad this thread is still getting used. I keep thinking about deleting the pictures when I manage my attachments to give me more space. Guess I'll leave them up for a while. wink.gif

There are semi-detailed instruction about half way down the first page.

No problem. We have more room for pictures now, so it's no big deal leaving them up.

Y'know I never did mention that all my trees are on castors, so they are really easy to roll around for cleaning. smile.gif

When Ron and Susi rehomed Tiko to me, they sent Tiko with the stand that Ron made for him. It IS a great stand.
