My step daughter shot me a picture of a rustic bird feeder made from a log and asked if I could make one similar and out of birch.
The one on the right is my first attempt by drilling, milling and relieving the inside with a die grinder. I think it is pecan wood because it smelled sooo- good when working with it. I did not like that one so much so I tried boring out a birch log and that went very well. It was nice to not have to be careful of the finish and I did no sanding.The end was drilled for 2 dowels before I cut it free and started the boring. The third shot is cutting off the spigot using my new vise!
