I couldn't resist sharing this project; made for my bro-in-law: a funky bird feeder created out of a salvaged aluminum square tube!! It turned out pretty cute, I think: he will get a kick out of the diamond-plate roof :) All of the materials were scrounged from the workshop & the sticks I gathered from the back yard.

Pattern or design used: My own design - Amber Conger

Welcome to Monday! I decided to run member highlights today instead of yesterday in order to make sure everyone had the opportunity to check out the winner of our dog collar contest. This member feature created by Refinerii is indeed a beauty. What an amazing bird feeder crafted from scrounged materials from the workshop and from nature. Nice work Refinerii! Thanks for sharing.

Take care,

Love the use of the turn buckles for the hanging mechanisms, the diamond plate roof you've created, as well as the copper wire additions you used to create uniqueness in your work. Very well done!

I so love your bird feeder. Very creative design. In the past few years this has been my new passion. Those pesky squirels are not going to be able to chew through this! Very
different found items you have put in your design. Those sure would sell well in the midwest.
