I'm ashamed to say I've been lurking for awhile, looking at all the amazing projects everyone has posted.   I thought I'd post the birdfeeders I've been making.  I make them out of dishes, vases, light globes, jars, or just about anything that has at least one opening.

I attached the vase to the top plate using all-thread and nuts, or glue if its a light globe.  The bottom plate is suspended slightly under also attached to the all-thread with and wing nut.  To fill it up you just take the bottom plate off and fill her up.   Thanks for letting me share!

PaintedShed writes: Thanks everyone! What a welcoming! To answer some questions. The metal stand is a display piece we made out of junk to use at shows. It actually comes apart in three pieces. The top is an old implement wheel, it sits ontop of an old axle, and that sits on top of a disc from an old plow. The building in the background is the courthouse in Bandera, Texas. Its a beautiful building. Posted: 9:07 am on October 22nd

I look forward to reading more of your posts.

Your project is great. I will indeed check out your site tomorrow, but my family is tucked in for the night and I've got to get off this pc. Thanks so much for sharing. Your idea here is very creative and all of the members could really play off this project example.
Again welcome, and happy posting.
