PVC Play Top

Here's what the play top will look like when completed. It is built from PVC pipe and PVC fittings. (NOTE: Parrots not included!)


Another view of the playtop (with OPTIONAL stunt parrots)

This project used 3/4" PVC pipe, but you can use 1/2" or 1" depending on the size of your bird. You can also vary the lengths of the components to make a larger play area.

Here is the parts list for this project:

  • Six 12-inch lengths of pipe
  • Two 6-inch lengths of pipe
  • Two 9-inch lengths of pipe
  • Four 90-degree elbow fittings
  • Two "T" fittings
  • Four end caps
