This is my weekend bird feeding project. The shallow platform is not intended to stock food like a feeder – It is designed for leftover treats that will not fit in one (bread/crackers). The glass base is easy to clean and nothing to rust or get chewed up. The teak wood was salvaged from parts of an old table and chairs I have had in my shop for years . The waterfall glass roof was added after I decided to place it next to a Japanese maple in the back yard – added a little Asian look. The landscaping lights shine from below at night to light it up (another reason for the glass bottom) No nails or screws were used except to mount the whole thing to the finished post. This project really turned into a lesson in geometry when doing the roof angles.

Beautiful work!
Does it have any squirrel deterrent features? lasers cannons? barbed wire?
Those greedy rats with furry tails eat all the seeds in my open feeders

No tree rat deterrent installed – just an old wire fox terrier that could care less.

You did a fine job. I agree with Dan, those angles are tough to get right.
