I recently got a copy of a drawing my grandfather made for a bird feeder in 1977. Grandpa had planned to sell kits and copies of the plans, but being 1977 it wasn’t as easy as it would be now. My parents still use a feeder very similar to this design that grandpa built in 1977.

It was a lot of fun to build using grandpa’s plans and it is very clear where I get my tendency to over engineer/ over design things from.

I can only hope that my feeder is still in use 35 years later.

Very nice work, I’m sure the birds will love it!
