I forgot all about making up a "Nut House" instruction page...I said I would and forgot all about it! (I do appologize.)
I was scanning through the board this morning and realized I hadnt done it. So this morning sat down and did it.
Here they are....
"Nut House" Instructions...<p>(Here are some Hammock making instructions for those that might need it...

Ok, I have an idea I'd like to share. <p>Cube #1: I designed a fleece cube shaped pouch for my gliders. I cut out 6 squares of fleece. Each square is about 4 inches by 4 inches. A friend of mine sewed the squares together to form a cube. She sewed little ribbons at all 4 corners at the top of the cube to tie to the top of the cage. I cut an entrance on one side of the cube for the gliders to get in and out. And of course I stock the cube with several little fleece "blankets" for them to snuggle in. <p>Cube #2: My friend who sews then decided to make another cube that had a bit more structure. She sewed needlepoint plastic canvas into the squares so that the cube holds its shape when the gliders are in it.<p>[ 01-16-2002: Message edited by: KatieM ]</p>

Hey Katie, those are really great ideas! I'm going to have a hayday at Hobby Lobby this weekend. They need to make a separate section in the forum for all creative craft ideas for glider lovers to share. I'd probably live in there! <img src="graemlins/yelclap.gif" border="0" alt="clap" /> <p>Thanks a bunch!!! <p>Ash and Tink <img src="graemlins/littleglider.gif" border="0" alt="glider" />

Ooooh very good ideas Katie! Thanks for sharing with us! :-)
Its sounds Kinda like something I made for my kids <img src="graemlins/littleglider.gif" border="0" alt="glider" /> . I made them what I call a "soft sided toy box" out of some red denim lined with purple plaid (sorry, but those red denim jeans I bought didnt fit the way the were supposed to, I didnt look like the girl on the tag wearing them thats for sure! LOL...So I recycled!) I just made a simple box shape (think a box with no lid) and sewed two loops on two corners so that I could hang it from the side of the cage....The kids have a ball digging through it when I put small toys/stuffed animals/ or blankets in it! <p>Heres a pic of it...dont laugh either...lol...this was my first sewing attempt months ago, Ive since figured out that my machine wasnt broke it was just me that couldnt sew a straight line...lol.

Ok, if I break out the sewing machine my wife will really have me put away. []images/icons/wink.gif" border="0[/] I did buy two coconuts today and will give that a shot. BMX girl thanks for the links to your page. I'm going to start in the morning. <img src="graemlins/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="thumb" /> <p>

BMX-<p>I have a couple of suggestions to add:<p>When I drill out my coconuts, I put them in the hole in the kitchen sink. It's just the right size to help hold them steady. <p>Also, I have found it's easier to get the meat out of the nut if you fill it with water, put it in a bowl, and microwave it for about 4 minutes first. I don't drain my coconuts before I drill the hole with the door knob hole bit. I just pour out the juice from that hole. <p>Just my 2 cents. <img src="graemlins/multi.gif" border="0" alt="[blob]" /> <p>Michele

Michele, I am so glad you put the part in there about the microwave. I couldn't remember whether it was two or four minutes. <p>BMX Great job. <img src="graemlins/yelclap.gif" border="0" alt="clap" />

I made three coconut houses Friday and I suggest buying them for $3.50 each! []images/icons/rolleyes.gif" border="0[/] My arms hurt so bad from trying to hold them still while I cut them and who would have ever thought it would be so hard to saw through a coconut! The furbutts are worth it though, I am putting th houses in tonight and I am sure they will love them
