How to Make a Bird Feeder

March 22, 2016

Description:

This week I made a bird feeder just in time for all the birds returning home from the south. I used 1″x8″ and 1″x10″ pine boards for this project as well as a piece of 8″x10″ polycarbonate and a set of hinges. It is extremely important to NOT USE PRESSURE TREATED lumber because the chemicals can easily be transferred from the board into the bird seed. I didn’t even bother applying a finish to mine because I didn’t want to risk poisoning the birds and it was so simple to make so if it does rot away, I can easily make another one in the years to come. Even though this project is simple, it was a lot of fun to make because I know it will get great use from all the birds that hang around our house in the summer.
