    Here's a 24" bird feeder I designed and built over the summer.

    Very nice John. I'd bet you have some classy birds visiting :stew1: The roof looks like it took a bit of time to do?

    Oh yes. The roof is individual cedar shingles. This one was for a coworker. I'm building another for my wife.

    Thanks! I'd like to figure out a way to put a tube in the middle where you'd fill it from the top. I'm into these kinds of wood projects. I design all my own work, no plans :)

    Wow!! A bird 5 star feeder. It will obviously be featured in all the bird eating guides, lucky birds. :)

    Very classy. Looks like you have some upscale birds in your neighborhood.

    Quite impressive. Not really a woodworker myself, so such a project would likely be beyond me. Fortunately, there are people like you in the world that I can purchase such items from.

    Aaaaahhhhh Capitalism and the benefits of specialization.
