With mothers day around the corner I was looking for something different, (as she is one of those people who has everything and in that is very hard to fine that unique gift) Well I was walking through my local Home Center I came across one of those plastic Made in China Humming bird feeders with a cone shaped top, from there the inspiration ran wild. I decided to use cypress as I happen to have an abundance of it and it is fairly weather resistant which is important since the houses will be finding their home in the Seattle area. As of the time of this posting I have applies 2 coats of a gloss spar varnish, with 3 more to go before I will be finished. I see some varation of these to be made out of Walnut and Black locust in the future….
The approximate dimensions are 8 X 22
The prototype is the one with the bulky stabilizer Of which the top is held on with screws to allow the ability to clean it out. The second attempt has a smaller stabilizer and opens from the bottom which hides the screws better. I am still not completely satisfied with the ratios but they are a work in progress..
Thanks for Looking
