Gazebo Fly-Through Platform Bird Feeder

Furnished content.

Gazebo Fly-Through Platform Bird FeederI build these large fly-through bird feeders about 10 years ago. The first one I designed after I had patched up an old Amish-built one for a coworker. That bird feeder was quite large and had a copper roof on it. I really liked how practical it was – you simply toss bird seed inside and the birds just fly in and out of it as they stop for a snack. I even added a plexiglass bottom on some of the later ones so the bottoms would last longer. They are 24” across and around 24” tall. The gold and black one was for my parents (they live near Pittsburgh). I was surprised how many years these have lasted outdoors… unfortunately the squirrels like them too…

On the wood I used boiled linseed oil and then several coats of SPAR urethane.

Hand and Foot boxmy wife and I have begun playing hand and foot with family and friends. It's a card game played with five decks of cards which requires a shuffler a card carousel and player card holders. I needed a box to keep it all together and organized. The box top is bookmatched mystery wood, the rest is leftover Genuine Mahogany with Brusso latches, and hinges.

Crawling around under the basement stairs to find what may or may not be in this box or that was a pain. However, leaving the space empty was not an option. I built this cart to make use of every …Source
