Hi PepperandRocky, I'm sorry I haven't been on the computer much at all this autumn. It's been very busy here at the farm. The two uprights I found at Home Depot as fence posts. Very inexpensive. Just one inch squares and I have them 3 feet tall. They are easy to drill holes into for any kind of hanging toys or for dowels to slide into. The little fence is just plastic. He doesnt use it anyway, it's mostly just to look cuter. The top dowel is a half inch one. After screwing it in with wood screws, I wrapped hemp string around and around it to cover the screws. It looks a bit better that way.
