    OFF TOPIC - just finished building my bird feeder

    95% of the work done with my scroll saw, the rest is w/ my jig saw.Then primed & painted with a plastic acrylic paint for extra durability.

    I did'nt get one visitor yet.. but its only been up for 20min

    so, how does it look?

    Nice job LIV!!!!!!!
    Think it might work better tho if you put the food in.
    It might have to air out for a day or so they probly can still smell the fresh paint .But realy nice!!!!!

    he he.. thx Dan, the food is in it, its in a 10" transparent plant water retainer.. and the paint is 2 days old.. and did'nt seem sticky at all, taught it would be dry enough for outside.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    Very nice work indeed Liv. Give them some time .. they will find it soon enough... and so will the squirrels. How are you going to keep them buggers out of it?

    I will install a oven pipe soon, but i'll wait and see if they can climbe a polished aluminium pole first.

    i just wish I did'nt have to install the baffle.. they are just soo ugly.

    thx for the kind words

    How high is it off the ground. Squirrels will have issues with a polished pole but they can jump pretty high. Hope you can keep them out. Was there any visitors before the day was done?

    I was gone all day.. but I did check the seeds and none were cracked or possibly taken.. so no visitors yet. its a 6 foot pole 12" in the ground. so 5feet from the ground minus a few inches because of the trim below the bottom of the feeder.
    the feeder itself is ~30" high and the big round holes are ~11" wide.

    The squirrels can jump that high nooo problem! In the winter the snow will make it easier too. The stove pipe is a good idea. It looks very very nice. It might take a little while for the birds to start using it because there is a lot of food available right now. Is there any shelter near by (shrubs, small evergreens )? Some birds like to hide nearby the food source and fly back and forth to the feeder. Jeeves

    wow liv!!!! how much do you charge to make those? hehe

    Don't you dare let my better half see that... she'll want me to build her one... and err well... the birds would die of old age before I get one completed if you know what i mean :
