LOL! Well, I don't know if there are any directions at all! I gave him a picture I found on line, but to be on the safe side (no trademark infringement), he made it different and quite a bit smaller (mine's about 1-1/2" square) than the one pictured.
He had the scrap aluminum in his workshop, we bought all the stainless steel bolts, wingnuts, and nuts at Ace Hardware. He went to his workshop (he has tons of power tools!), and about an hour or so later, came upstairs and handed me the completed toy!
Maybe your husband could get creative and come up with something similar -- doesn't have to be exactly the same -- we even thought about making a round one that was closed on the ends, and the ends would fall off when the wingnuts were unscrewed!
You could also buy a threaded rod and just thread wingnuts onto it, hang it from the top of the cage and your bird could unscrew the wingnuts. That's easy and simple, yet would keep your bird busy for hours!
