We started enjoying birds a few years back, humming birds mostly, but when we moved to PA last year we started with the other flying dinosaurs. This is my first, of what I hope to be many, bird feeders. I didn’t have any plans, just started cutting with a general idea in my head. I used cedar but there is not much cedar in North East PA so I may have to find other woods to play with that can hold up to the outdoor weather (unless I can find a cheap source for cedar). I didn’t finish the wood with anything, I was worried that the birds might not care for it and cedar seems to hold up pretty well on its own. I can’t wait to see how long my feeder will last outside before falling apart :). I used 4 screws on the lower part of the roof in case I have to replace the plexiglass. The rest is water proof glue I bought for making a cutting board project that is yet to be started :)
