The wood used can be either cedar or some hardwood, such as birch or maple. The wire used is 1/16" stainless or cold rolled steel. This wire can usually be purchased at your local hardware store.

The cage is assembled as shown in the photographs on this page. Photograph No. 4 shows the assembly of the top with the wires in place. The bottom frame work is assembled as shown in photographs No. 5 and No. 7. The top is then fastened in place and the wires inserted in the sides as shown in photograph No. 9. The newstyle plastic cups shown in photograph No. 6 fit into the opening left for them, and are retained by the two projecting ends of wire, as shown in the photograph. The ends of the door frame are notched to fit over the last wire, and the door is held closed by a wire spring, as shown in the drawing.
