A Gym for the Fids

I've started looking into getting a play gym for Rio my lil parrotlet and my soon new addition. Who with in this week or so I should know the gender . But due to limited funds I can't get them what I want! My brother has offered to build me one but I'm wanting to have grape vine or a similar type of wood. Does anyone know where I can get the wood??

this is a list of safe and bad wood:


i get all my supplies outside in the woods. i found this nice hickory tree that i have trimmed and sanded all of the bumps off and will soon pressure wash it to clean it

with added branches

look in the woods for safe trees that look like they can be turned into play gyms or branches that can be put together to make a play gym. have fun with it!

Did you ever end up making/getting a gym?
