  1. Saloon Bird Feeder

    I made this saloon-style bird feeder from two 6-foot fence boards that were 5.5" wide. I read that pressure-treated boards might be harmful to our feathered friends, so I used untreated boards. It has three bar stools and wooden bottles on the bar. The top has a hinge so you can open it to...
  2. CHRISTMAS IS FOR THE BIRDS.

    CHRISTMAS IS FOR THE BIRDS. depends what the context is. THIS CHRISTMAS I WANTED TO DO SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR THE BIRDS. One of the things I wanted to do this fall was build a bird feeder that would keep the seeds dry. Most feeders the birds scratch the seeds out and they fall on the ground, in...
  3. Country Store and Ranch Feeder

    Here is a double nest box house. The building is an old store front with a side addition. I cut apart a few old cookie tins for the advertisements. The second building is a gravity flow feeder. The ceiling inside the building is vaulted to shed the bird seeds to the "stall" areas to be dispensed...
  4. Edna's birdfeeder remodel

    This is a birdfeeder I recently completed. It belongs to a customer that has bought feeders from me in the past. Picture #4 shows the carcase that I satarted with. I followed the existing roof line and made it look like a barn. The feeder is refilled at the roof top by removing the cupola. The...
  5. Cedar Birdfeeder

    This is just a quick project that was needed for the outside. Nothing special here to know about it. It was made from scrap plywood, hardwood and cedar shingles. Pretty much it was scrap laying around the shop. The top roof section lifts off to give access to fill the seed. The birds love it and...
  6. Another Birdfeeder

    THIS ONE i MADE IT FOR MY BACKYARD!
  7. Old West style Birdfeeder

    This is a birdfeeder modeled after buildings from the late 19th century. The building is approximately 11" x 22" without the sidewalks. The birds walk all the way around the building peeking around the corners to make sure a bigger bird is not already there. It loads from the roof and has...
  8. Bird Feeder: Cedar and Plexiglass

    Cedar and plexiglass bird feeder, no finish: I made this bird feeder as a gift for my father in-law. He will likely feed more squirrels with it than birds as its open design will not keep them out. I used biscuits to join the 8 sides and rabbited in the floor. I used a combination of...
  9. Large Log Cabin Birdfeeder

    This is a large log cabin birdfeeder I built to scale (1"=1'). The cabin measures 2' x 4' with a 1' wrap around covered porch which makes the overall dimensions 4' x 6'. The feeder is mounted aprox. 6' off the ground on a real cherry tree base I had to cut due to disease. As you can see by the...
  10. Birdfeeder: the old and the new

    In our yard we had an old plastic birdfeeder that broken into two pieces (I think it had a "mis-adventure" between the cat and a bird). I almost threw the pieces out but after seeing the cost of new ones in the stores I decided that I would do a little reduce/reuse/recycle. We took the perches...
  11. Votive Candleholder

    Tis the season for Christmas gifts. I liked the plan provided in the July 2009 issue of WOOD magazine and made a pair of votive candle holders as gifts for my parents and grandparents. (Shhhh, don't tell them!) I love scrap wood projects where we spent more on the votives and candles than we...
  12. Mom's birdfeeder

    My Mom asked me if I would build her the same birdhouse my Dad had built back in the 70's. She had found the plans folded amongst some of her books. I think they were PW plans. She can fill it from her kitchen window. The wood is some cedar scraps I had. I made the post from some raw cedar and...
  13. 1st Birdfeeder

    Last year during my son's afternoon nap, I needed something to do, so I made this from Cedar kinda on a whim. The plan was to leave it unfinished however, after only one winter, it showed some serious weathering, plus it was originally too big and was bowing out the plexiglass. So a couple of...
  14. Gazebo Styled Bird Feeder

    After entering our Gazeobo, & Deck, I neglected the birdfeeder, so I thought I'd better enter it. It's made of leftover OSB board from the main gazebo. You may notice I made it two story, so the different species of birds don't have to fight as much.
  15. Yard projects

    I posted 3 projects I have been working on the last few weeks. The first one is my ladder flower planters that I wanted to have something on the backyard shop wall. This was PERFECT! I got it from Woodsmith magazine, they had it as a 5 tier display tower for inside a home. I knew right away it...
  16. Simple Bird Feeder

    While on vacation over the winter holiday, I noticed that my dog really likes to stare out the window at the birds. We have a Viszla that is very active and loves to chase the birds. Actually, she starts drooling at the potential of catching one. Currently, our deck doesn't attract many of the...
  17. Birdhouse

    I meant to post this in the Spring, but it's a bird feeder I built that I was pretty proud of!
  18. Hand Tools
    I have been working on a chisel and need to know if I need to temper it. The link to the blog is : http://lumberjocks.com/Sanderguy777/blog Please add comments to the blog on what you think etc. I used the angle grinder for cutting the file and taking the teeth off. The steel got hot during...
  19. Woodworking Skill Share
    I'm a big fan of covering up small imperfections in joinery by dabbing glue on it and sanding sawdust into the crack. I know it's a common technique, but I was wondering what grit of sandpaper people usually use. I've been using 100-grit, and it's been using up sandpaper like there's no...
  20. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Greetings brother LJs. I recently saw an item that I instantly wanted to make one of for myself from the projects section here. I contacted the individual that made it to see if he'd share the pattern, but he no longer has it. He steered me to Wood Magazine, the source he got it from, but it...
