I made this saloon-style bird feeder from two 6-foot fence boards that were 5.5” wide. I read that pressure-treated boards might be harmful to our feathered friends, so I used untreated boards. It has three bar stools and wooden bottles on the bar. The top has a hinge so you can open it to add the bird seed. This is a quick and easy project that can be done in a day or two. You can also use this design for other themes, such as an ice cream shop, lemonade stand, coffee shop, etc.
Cut list using 5.5” wide boards:
Two 18” pieces glued together for the back
Two 2” x 13.5” sides with 10 degree angle on one end
One 11” bottom piece
One 11” top piece with 10 degree bevel along one long side
One 4” x 9.5” piece for the bar.
Three 3/4” dowels and 2” squares for the bar stools
