The upper frame is 8 curved pieces of 1/2 ply glued to an octagonal 1/4 ply floor and a central octagonal post made from a 2×2. the roof is sheathed with 1/8 X 1 strips of cedar, then shingled with the same. The side panels are of 1/8 birch ply that was stacked and cut with a scroll saw

Very artistic.
I’m sure the raccoons will love all the “hand” holds you added for them. LOL
I have to put my feeders on steel poles or the raccoons clean me out every night.

Thank you for your support. Perhaps we should meet because we live nearby. I once visited a home near Maple Bay where a lady was doing marquetry.

Hi Terry, I’ll bet that lady near Maple Bay was Elaine.
There are quite a few of us in the area. Maybe we need a get together some time. .... I like the bird feeder. .... Good to see you back on LJs

Yes … you are both probably right about me being the Marquetry lady you visited. Years ago we lived close to Maple Bay, and I participated in a few “Meet The Artist” weekend open-house (workshop) tours. I’ll make contact with you Terry. Hopefully we can get together!!
