A beautiful feeder, the birds will like it.

What have you treated the Walnut with for outdoor use? Last I checked it wasn’t on anyone’s list for suitable for outdoor usage.

I just had some Helmsman spar urethane, once it’s fully cured it should be fine for birds.

Like your design, I’m going to give it a try this week. Hope the birds share with the squirrels.

Hi Frank, I kinda elaborated on this plan below. Added a center hole, with a little bigger forstner bit and cut some screen the same shape to fit in the bottom to cover drain holes. here’s a link to look at— Mason Jar Log Bird Feeder

I have lots of squirrels also, they kick the seed out of all my feeders so the ducks and geese have something to eat, still is aggravating.

A walnut bird feeder – pretty sure the birds don’t care but it sure is attractive, nice build
