Spent a bit of time in the shop with my grandson and made a bird feeder which was a perfect project for him and his attention span .
Made from red and aromatic cedar scraps and used Titebond 3 and nails and staples to assemble .

It’s about time someone shows you how to do things. Haha. You guys did a fine job. Must of been a lot of fun. Talk about attention span, what do you get maybe an hour? My grandson is 2 1/2 and is starting to come to the shop with me, but the only thing he wants to do is play with the scraps.

HaHa, Lori made me take down my feeder? Too much mess and strange plants growing everywhere, Suet blocks only ones allowed now. (Hope for some Humming birds in the spring?)
Only 1 Grangirl comes to the shop, likes to suck up shavings with the D. C. for 2 min. then tells me it is to dirty to play in?

Nice time spent, I mentioned how you know how to work with your grand kids to one of my clients as I want dad to influence this kids development that I am working with. Thanks for your inspiration and quality time with kids. It will be remembered.

Had to take down my bird feeders. My cats are too good at their jobs.

Seems the only bird they tolerate is a very smart robin, who loves cat food.
