This is version 1.0 of a playstand for Gus. The base and top perch/uprights are 1 1/4 inch PVC and the smaller ladder/angle perches are 1" pipe. No adhesive because I'm not sure Gus will be able to climb around on it - the perches may have to be closer together. I have a couple of food cups to attach and manila rope for wrapping the perches. No toys yet. I need a bit more pipe to make a place to hang a toy on top. I have a dilemma...Gus isn't very mobile so it must be easy for him to climb around but I don't want to fill the thing with so many perches that it becomes another cage. Plus it needs a platform perch so he can hunker down the way he does on his play top.

Oh, I love a good DIY stand!! I'm sorry I'm of no help with what to do about improvements though. I have never made one, but would love to try someday! Maybe a pic of what you have now would help. You could try some rope netting on one side so he could climb around that way?
