Cedar and plexiglass bird feeder, no finish:

I made this bird feeder as a gift for my father in-law. He will likely feed more squirrels with it than birds as its open design will not keep them out. I used biscuits to join the 8 sides and rabbited in the floor. I used a combination of plexiglass and cedar to make the vertical feed bin located in the center of the feeder. The top cap can be removed to re-fill the feed bin.

Great looking bird feeder. Did you have plans or design it yourself?

Thanks for the positive feedback.

This feeder is my own design…made from scraps of cedar I had left over from another project. It was one of those “design as you go” things!
