With spring trying to make an appearance, got on a roll for Bird Feeders. made from cedar, the bodies are stave construction, all are unfinished, so they can age gracefully. dimensions, approx. 11” high by 8” for tray and roof. fun to make but dusty.

Very nice form on the bird feeders. Best design I have seen for a long while. How thin are the cylinders turned and how many staves in the build up. A+

Thanks for the comments. The cylinders are 8 stave construction, with a wall thickness of 3/4”, to add strength. The staves were glued with titebond 3.

Each Of the 3 parts are fitted and connected by the threaded rod, through the centre, to allow for filling and cleaning. The top comes off, fill the feed and tighten the top once again. The threaded rod, 1/4” x 20, is epoxied to a threaded insert in the base.
