Every now and then I get the builder bug to make a new project and this weekend I was ready to create something fun for the birds.
After learning how to use all the new tools in our workshop I’m pretty much in building heaven.
Robert is a great teacher; so patient when it comes to dealing with my fears and many questions.
For this project I’m using scrap wood and some copper I had lying around. I wasn’t sure what I’d come up with I just knew I needed to make something.
This is smaller table saw; it’s suitable for cutting fine pieces of wood and it’s pretty quiet compared to our large table saw.
I always wear safety goggles and gloves when I’m cutting wood, these two little safety tips helped me over come fear and you know what else? It’s important to keep yourself safe.
The hat well it keeps my hair out of my face.
Tools For Project Assembly
Tools included a hammer and drill.
As you can see I’m using up not only scrap wood but some recycled pieces too. I started with a base and basically built the planter box first and then closed in the bird feeder on the other.
Drilling holes in each end of this project will be necessary so we can use that copper for a handle. Just have fun with the bending process of that wire and make it unique to what you like.
After the wire is attached stain the entire box and let it dry.
Wait for the following day to add flowers and then add a liner into the feeder side prior to inserting feed.
This is a simple project you can build using any type of wood, create the same concept or add your own twist to this idea then remember to hang it outdoors in a space the birds will find it.
