The box looks big enough to me. Both parents got in with space. What is the measurements of your box? A little dance? How funny maybe just getting stable with his balance

It doesn't really have to be 12 inches on each side. Wild cockatiels raise their chicks in nests that are smaller and less luxurious than this! It's certainly possible to make your own nestbox though if you have the skills and suitable wood. It doesn't even have to be wood, and people have successfully used plastic boxes for a nest. The most important thing is to make sure that the doorway is not too low. It needs to be high enough that the chicks need some climbing skills to get out. Chicks have been injured and even killed because the door was too low, and they were able to walk through it before they had enough feathers to fly if they fell. There's some information here on the general design of a good nestbox: http://talkcockatiels.com/showthread.php?t=27688

If you google for how to build a cockatiel nestbox, you will find several sites with information. Just make sure that it's a good safe design.
