this is a bird feeder i have made for some friends, they asked for one and so being in between projects i wanted to do this for them..the feeder is made from walnut, oak, and a couple of red cedar appliques…which are the bee hive that denotes industry, which birds are always so busy and either feeding or building a nest…or acting like there in a lumber jock forum…chatting about bird things i suppose…the feeder is built like i would frame up a regular building…1 inch square oak and the sides are walnut , that are lapped over each other..the roof is oak and so are the gable ends…the trim pieces that hold the food in in heart pine…just for some added color..and then it has a collar on the bottom that will fit over a 4×4 post…there real secure that way..thanks for taking the time to look…comments are always welcome..grizzman ..p.s i know i need to improve my lighting situation to have better pictures…its a work in progress.

What a fine dining establishment you made for the birds!!! Your friends, as well as their feathered friends will love it! I love the little Beehive on it! You always add such wonderful ‘little touches’ to your projects. :)

Looks cozy!! All it needs now is some furniture and a fireplace and those birds will be set for the winter.

Tweet tweet. Make sure you post it up high enough… our neighbor’s cat recently snagged a bird right out our feeder, he leaped from atop the fence and pounced right on the little guy… I saw it happening, so I can only assume he has attempted it before based on how well he timed it, definately not the first try at that little manuever. Yours looks sizeable enough to house a pigeon farm. Nice work!

Nice work, Grizz. I love the wood combinations and the medallion on the front.

Grizz: A cool looking bird feeder.

I’ve never seen a feeder that birds didn’t flock to.

We’re going out tonight for dinner, your feeder open for business yet…....................?

..........if I don’t hear your answer it is the waves, 3rd floor on the lanai, waves dashing about 50 feet away on the diagonal…..wind in the palms, birds congregating for evening and making a ruckus in the trees… winds are great…....82 deg…......dropping…....high humidity affects my hearing, especially when I am body surfing….....

We put up a bird house on our garden shed last year, and this year we had a brood of chickadees in there…....

Kermit, my 20 year old mitered conure is at birdy camp….....we have the worlds greatest bird sitter…...wasn’t always that way.

Guess I should build a bird feeder too….........winter time is coming…..........chickadees are our year round pals….

Pictures will come later….......
