Learning to bend the bamboo

I have always depended on others to do for me minor & major repairs to cages & things related. So, when I was given 3 old cages in different stages of wear & tear, I thought I try some D.I.Y.

Been hearing a lot of tips on bending bamboo, so I decided try with hot water instead of fire. Success on the first attempt. The way I see it, it is much easier, plus the water is good to soften the bamboo and moisturise it at the same time.

I won't paint the cages just yet. Too much work. Prefers the lazy man's look - raw.... ;-)
