I also use the pot of boiling water to heat the tubing. I used the hair dryer for a while, but most of my family, (animals included,) didn't care for the noise. One other thing I do is cut the hoop into two equal pieces, then connect them using two couplings. That way, you can twist the hoop, making it collapsible.









The hoop in the pictures is only 1/2" tubing. I made a batch of smaller sized hoops for my daughter's upcoming Hawaiian themed birthday party. I usually use a 3" piece of Velcro wrapped around the hoop to hold it closed when it's collapsed.

nobody ever said cds were made of metal. they do, however have a metallic coat, (which you even said yourself,) which would still constitute as putting metal in a microwave. i am pretty sure, though, that "thare" isn't a real word.

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / kitty nesting box on: May 14, 2006 06:41:54 PM
i got the sweetest little pair of society finches today as a lovely mother's day present. they looked rather sad in their cage, (more nervous than sad, i suppose,) so i decided to build them a nesting box so they could hide away from my toddler's nosey little self. i haven't made anything from wood in about 13 yrs though, so it's a bit crude, but it serves it's purpose!





it has a lid that lifts right off, but i'm leaving it open for the time being, so they get used to it being in the cage. it's actually only supposed to have the one hole where his right eye should be, but i mismeasured, so there's the hole in the bottom corner under there, too. i used a torch lighter to burn the other eye and the nose on. i think i'm actually quite proud of it, even if it does look like something a kid made. Cheesy

thanks! i have been learning over the last few days just how cheap those bastards really can be. my hubby had a few auctions for gold w/ the buy it now price being what the gold was actually worth for the day, or the option to submit a best offer. he has received a few offers, but they were all ppl asking to pay $100 less than the gold is actually worth! Shocked i told him that they should be lucky i'm not him, otherwise they'd get quite a nasty response in return! Roll Eyes

i hope they do, too! so far, i don't have any bids on them, which kinda sucks, but i'm thinking i may be able to sell them to a head shop my friend manages. i'd probably make more money by doing that than selling them on ebay, anyway!
