Homemade play gym help?

I have a new conure named Lily. She's a hybrid between a green cheek and a sun conure c: I've searched online and in different pet stores, but the only types of perches I can find are ones you hook onto the cage.

Originally, I was looking for a simple basic perch I could move around but after seeing other people's homemade playgyms, I'd like some help in making one!

I'm not sure what sort of ways to connect things together for the most part. I know what materials are safe. Stainless steel, untreated or natural wood, etc. I plan on buying bird toy parts and making random little toys to incorporate, but I'm not sure how to go about making a play gyme.

I need ideas to use for a base, and for the structure. Also, how should I connect everything? I have no experience with building these sort of things and I'd really like to make a fun gym for Lily to get a lot of exercise and mental stimulation c:

TAKE YOUR PETS FOR REGULAR CHECK-UPS!
my cat died at 3 years old due to invasive kideny cancer. he was highly anemic and his kidneys and blood work were off the charts, the vet said it was the worst he's ever seen. we had to put him down that day. up untill then, he showed no sings of illness that we could recognize, however he was a ticking time bomb and only the vet could see it. we thought he was just muscular, but it was just his bulging kideneys. animals hide illness! he only showed signs the day before he died, before this, he seemed completely normal, healthy, and his usual self. his name was maxie and he was my best friend, because we thought he was healthy we didnt take him for check-ups but had we cought it earlier he might have had a chance. we learned from this, we should have paid attention, take ALL your pets for check-ups so they can be helped early on before its too late.
