The Birds Love Them!
Cedar stock for two feeders sits ready for sanding.
Frequently people tell me stories about the birds that visit their backyard feeder, and a note of enthusiasm is usually heard in their voice. And if they have a long-standing feeder, they usually have lots of good stories.
When asked to build a feeder I quickly think about the lumber I have on hand. If I don't have enough good cedar in the shop, then I'll go get some. For me, cedar feeders are the way to go.
Photos show "work in progress":
"21-inch roof slats will overlap, 3/4-inch shiplap-style"
"Dark western cedar supports sit inside the 16-inch long seed tray"
"Roof supports are cut at a 22.5 degree angle"
"Wide roof panels will protect the seed tray from rough weather"
Before adding trim to the roof edges and seed tray, I will secure the roof with nails and screws.
Then, I will prepare a pole and platform for the feeder. Should be ready in a matter of a few hours.
Final photos to follow.
