Here are the detailed plans and cut list dimensions for the bird feeder here

So I am not sure why Im building this bird feeder in the middle of winter but I had some cedar lying around and I was looking at some of my project books and I saw a design in this Birdhouse Book and decided to build it…. I hope you like it.

I picked this feeder because I liked its simple look and I have to admit the piano hinge on the roof will work awesome….. It wasn’t too hard to make but the piece of cedar that I had was very dry and it cupped in the middle but I had just enough wood to finish the project.

If you are looking for a book that has detailed plans and a lot of information on how to construct some any bird house and feeders check the link that I attached….

Hey, the birds need a restaurant during the winter also. Nice one

Looks great, our bird feeder is on it’s last leg. 10+ years old.
I would suggest a prism shaped strip of wood on the bottom of the inside. That would help the seeds feed towards the outside…
