Default How to make a detolf?

I'm going to use ErinsAnimals' tutorial for the lid, but how do I assemble the actual setolf so it's a hamster cage? I'm worried about the metal poles.

I built mine per to the instructions that came in the box, but just didn't attach the shelves or the last piece of glass that would be the top of the cage, or the door of the display unit. I built them including the metal poles, which as far as I know aren't bad for the hamster, and actually come in useful for attaching water bottles and other things )). If you are intending to use the lid, you would need the poles anyway for the lid to rest on.
Hope this helps, and enjoy your new cage!

The instructions are very easy to follow but you will need at least one other person there to hold things together while you assemble it. And take care not to let the glass bend, it's tempered glass which means it will bend a little if you let it but if it goes too far it will shatter.

The metal poles are what holds the whole thing together, they hold the two end panels while the glass just sits in slots in the end panels. And yeah, that's what the lid actually sits on.

If you need any advice when you're actually doing it I've put mine up and taken it down and then put it up again and I'm usually pretty reachable by PM
