The Cutting List:

The Country Store Bird Feeder is made from inexpensive pine along with a few other leftover pieces of wood from my scrap bin. Pine works well for this project and will last for several seasons, especially when the exterior is painted or stained. Cedar, redwood, certain hardwoods or pieces of salvaged lumber are also good choices for birdhouses and feeders. Hardwoods such as mahogany and teak are naturally resistant to insects and weather, and tend to last longer when exposed to the elements. Avoid using any pressure treated lumber; the chemicals used to ward of the bugs are potentially harmful to the birds.

The size of the feeder is not critical, and you can adjust the dimensions as needed. I used a standard 1x10 pine board from the local home center for the base of the feeder, which is actually 9-1/4""full module moduleImage""mod_40326746""slide_img_10754873_12766542""12766542""10754873""image_wrapper""https://usercontent1.hubstatic.com/12766542_f1024.jpg""data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAIAAAAAAAP///yH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7""https://usercontent1.hubstatic.com/12766542_f520.jpg""1""2448""2448""""lazy""https://usercontent1.hubstatic.com/12766542_f520.jpg""1""2448""2448""""caption""img_desc_12766542""img_source_show_10754873_12766542""img_source span_link""full module moduleText""mod_40336841""txtd""txtd_40336841"" L x 9-1/4"" H x 9-1/4"" L x 1-1/2"" L x 9-1/4"" L x 3/4""

    The Bin Sides, the ends of the Bin Roof and Porch Roof and the tops of the Porch posts are all cut on a 30-degree angle. Rough-cut the porch posts a little long; we will adjust the final length of the posts later for an exact fit to support the roof.

A power miter saw makes cutting off 1/4"" wide pieces of pine. Measure across the end of the base, and cut the end pieces to fit. Then measure the side pieces - including the additional thickness of the end pieces, and cut the sides to fit. I added the trim pieces at the end of the project, after the pieces were fitted and sanded and then stained.

    Some Assembly Required: Use Water-resistance Glue and Weather Resistant Nails | Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Source

    Build the Bin

    The country store design might look complicated, but the construction is relatively easy when broken down into subassemblies.

    Begin by assembling the bin, and start by attaching the front section to one of the side pieces. Line up the bottom edges of both pieces, and secure with weather-resistant nails or screws. A bead of water-resistant glue helps to holding power of the pneumatic nails. Then, attach the other side section of the bin with more glue and nails or screws.

    Next, attach the bin to the High Wall section using more nails or screws. Temporarily position the bin against the high wall, centering the bin on the back section. Use a pencil to trace a line along the inside edge of the wall, following the sides of the bin. This will make it easier to locate the nails for attaching the the wall to the bin.

Using the same procedures for attaching the bin to the base, mark the locations for the pilot holes. This time, take care to angle the drill at the same 45-degree angle as the roof line. Attach the porch roof to the high wall.

    Put Up the Porch Posts

    The porch posts were cut long initially to make it easier to mark and cut the posts to the correct length after the porch roof is installed. The posts are located approximately 1-1/2"" in from the side edges. Temporarily line up the top end of the post (with the 30-degree cut) under the porch roof, and mark where the post meets the base. Cut the posts to length.

    Now, position the posts back under the porch roof and mark the post locations on the base for drilling the pilot holes. Since the porch roof is now in the way of drilling, unscrew and remove the porch roof. Drill the pilot holes for the posts, and attach each one with a screw drive up from the underside of the base. Then, re-attach the porch roof.

    Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for The front of the porch roof simply rests on the posts. If needed, you can attach the roof to the posts with a nail or screw.

    Add the Final Touches

    The Country Store Bird Feeder is nearly complete and only needs a few final touches:

    Attach the trim around the edges of the base using nails or screws.

    Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for The Bin Roof is attached using a pair of hinges, forming a lid for the bin. The small hinges make it easy to fill the hopper with birdseed. Center the roof on the bin, making sure that the overhang is even on each side. Attach one side of the hinge to the roof, then attach the other side of the hinge to the high wall.

    Attach the 1 last update 2020/06/03 the Ridge Cap to the top of the high wall with a few nails.Attach the Ridge Cap to the top of the high wall with a few nails.

    The new platform bird feeder is now ready to feed the hungry birds in yard. Attach the feeder to a post, fill with bird seed (we use black oil sunflower seeds) and the birds will come. The Country Store Bird Feeder was open for just a few hours before several chickadees, titmice, a nuthatch and a downy woodpecker all stopped by to pick up some seed.

          That is so neat! I definitely love it. I wish I was more of a carpenter, but I am not. People who can wirk with wood and build things are so very fortunate!

          Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Thanks for stopping by! Squirrels are a problem with platform and tray feeders, and I just accept that they will eat some of the birdseed. A baffle around the pole helps to keep them off the feeder. The squirrels are also daily visitors to our deer feeder box, which you can see in the background of the last photo. They even knocked the lid off!

          This is a really cute feeder and your directions and photos are very easy to understand. I think our squirrel would make an all day buffet at this feeder, but with a few adjustments, this feeder would be quite popular with the cardinals we have. Thanks for sharing your project. Pinned to my bird and garden board!
