Built a bird bath and apple feeder for our church to sell and raise additional money then what we were given. Based on the Parable Of Talents, our talent was $20.

Materials Used:
Oak Lath – Roof $FREE
Cedar – Edge Trim & Walls $FREE
O.S.B – Painted (3) coats for platform $FREE
Old Pot – Handle removed, bought from Goodwill for $1.59
Styrofoam Mossy Rocks – $1.00
Pebbles – $1.00

Construction Time: 1.5 Hours

I would appreciate some opinions of a honest asking price for this creation. I was thinking around $35-$50.

Thanks for checking it out!

I’d have to say that $50 would be a bit pricey but maybe $35 might sell. I build stuff all the time and think to myself, self, this is worth $200 but I end up selling for $100 because I want to sell not be a collector. The charity thing almost always gets you less but at least you got your work out there and word of mouth will get you more customers, hopefully. Good luck and BTW it’s a nice piece of work you did, good job.
