Made this birdfeeder for a client.
I made it with scraps different hardwoods/oak laying around in the shop.
She wanted a water tray aswell, and something she could clean easily.
I choose a tupperware tray, i think it would hold up well during the next winter.
She also wanted a spot for a peanutbutter jar. ( under the roof )
It’s still a suprise and i hope she likes it :)

If Frank Lloyd Wright had any interest in designing bird feeders, this one would be in his back yard. A superb design and build.

Like I said “clever guy!” LOL Hope you thought about squirrls and cats? I don’t feed the birds anymore as my cats are too good at hunting.

You have an excellent eye for design.

Bird seed, peanut butter, suet and water: sounds like a gourmet dining establishment for your client’s avian friends! Nice job!!

Another great project. You have great imaginagion and design skills. I love this bird palace.

It won’t be squirrel safe though. I can tell you that from feeding birds myself. They climb wood easily.

You may want to think about a way to anchor it to the ground. I think high wind or a squirrel on one end may tip it over.
