Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This easy-to-follow manual contains simple instructions and illustrations for building 12 feeders in classic and contemporary designs. Suitable for space ranging in size from large suburban yards to tiny apartment terraces, these structures include a near-ground feeder, a hanging cardinal feeder, a post/hanging thistle feeder, a weathervane feeder, an acrylic pyramid, a five-position multispeed feeder, a traditional chalet-style feeder, and more.

Easy-to-Make Bird Feeders for Woodworkers also describes construction materials and basic tools, explains how to work with glass and plastic, provides construction tips, suggests design features (single-perch, multiple-perch, and open-style feeders); discusses food-dispersal systems, the size and shape of seed openings, ways to protect food from weather spoilage and even how to make your feeder squirrel-proof.

You'll also find a wealth of helpful information on common avian species, do-it-yourself food-source recommendations, special dietary requirements of the hummingbird, how to attract birds you want, how to select a site, how to hang and support the feeder, and more.

Enhanced by numerous diagrams, detailed illustrations, and nine tables (with lumber sizes, birds' food preferences, etc.), this modestly priced how-to book invites woodworkers at all levels of expertise to build attractive and inexpensive feeders that will be a pleasure to create and delightfully rewarding to watch.

Synopsis:

Detailed, simple-to-use guide for designing, constructing, caring for, and using feeders. Text, illustrations for 12 classic and contemporary designs.
