Cedar Bird Feeder

Simple bird feeder turned from two cedar planks … uses a glass ceiling fan shade from a thrift store as a seed reservoir.

The top is 10” in diameter, the bottom tray is 8” in diameter.

There is a 3/16” steel rod through the center, threaded on the bottom end with a hanger loop on the top.

Very nice bird feeder!

COOL way of using items on hand to do it!

Nice recycle Gerry. Did you check for any antique value on that shade? ;)
Glad to see that you designed it with drainage holes for those rainy days.
