A simple project. Bird feeders made from old fences and scrap plywood. The larger outhouses are made with plywood box wrapped with 1/8” thick weathered wood for durability. The door handles are ipe, it can be shaped into a relatively small piece and shot with a .23 ga. pin nailer without splitting. They all include a top made of FRP, attached with glue and brass brads.

I no longer make the smaller ones, they had to be refilled too often. The larger ones are approximately 5 1/2” square x 11” tall.
