This is my first pet Instructable so please no rude comments about it you may post constructive criticism and your comments about the project in general, any questions will be answered as soon as I can get to them (Also I built mine before I did the Instructable so I know I don't have the right number of pieces in the materials picture). I have two young Lovebirds and I wanted somewhere I could place them on that would be safe for them to chewed on and I could also train them on it. So I created this simple but effective T-shaped stand to train them on and it is also just a place for them to hang out on and watch T.V. with me.
Step 1: Materials
This project is very cheap and easy (I didn't pay anything because I already had everything) I believe almost everyone will have at least some of these lying around their house and if not stores like Lowes and other hardware stores have all these in abundance. Bear in mind that I made this Instructable after I made the stand so my PVC pipe is already cut.
1) Four T-Section PVC connections.
2) Four Corner PVC connections.
3) PVC pipe about the size of your birds feet.
4) Vet Wrap or Athletic Tape (Like the kind track runners wrap their feet with)
5) Old Newspapers
6) Spare Cloth
Note: I didn't use any adhesives or glues except on the bottom to connect the cloth to the stand (even that is covered by newspaper) this is because almost all glues are poisonous to birds as you probably know.
Step 2: Tools
1) Pipe Saw
3) Measuring Tape
4) Knife or Scissors
5) Tape (I used the clear type of Duct Tape)
Step 3: Cutting the PVC Pipe to Length
You will need to cut your PVC pipe into different lengths for this project. You will need three seventeen inch sections and eight eight inch sections.
Note: If you are using used PVC pipe then I strongly advise you to wash it encase your bird does chew on it.
