This was a simple little project. Some animal stole my wife’s suet feeder, so I made her a new one. I used wine barrel staves for the frame and some welded metal wire mesh. The top of the feeder slides up the rope so that you can insert the suet cakes from the top. Very easy, but fun. The wine barrel staves add a decorative touch and make it a little unique. You notice it is empty, the birds love it too.

I like your design, simple & elegant with the curve of the stave. We have several bird feeders in our backyard. I may try your design but with the hot weather in Florida, it could make the suet stinky and the squirrels and flying squirrels could be a problem.

Have your say...
