There are many designs to choose from when building a bird feeder, so make sure you take a look over the rest of the similar plans shown on our site. Moreover, make sure the lumber hasn’t been treated with toxic substances that might hinder the birds. The next step of the woodworking project is to attach the supports to both sides of the frame. Cut small triangles out of wood and attach them to the top of the supports, as shown in the plans. Smart Tip: Apply a few coats of paint or stain to the components, in order to protect them from decay and to enhance the look of the platform bird feeder.

Layered cardboard is still the best method I have found for leveling a garage gym platform. Building a basic bird feeder with a simple design is ideal for any backyard, especially if you have a few scrap piece of lumber. Afterwards, buy weather resistant lumber, as the feeder will be exposed to moisture and sunlight. In order to lock the boards together tightly, we recommend you to add waterproof glue to the joints and to insert finishing nails. As you can notice in the plans, we recommend you to build the supports out of 1×8 lumber, by following the information shown in the plans.

Work with attention and lock the rafters into place with waterproof glue and finishing nails. Make sure the pieces of wood overlap at least 1″, in order to drain the water properly. Don’t forget to LIKE and SHARE our projects with your friends, by using the social media widgets.
Don't use glue -- Murphy's law says that you'll need to move the platform right after the glue sets. If I went the 4x6 stall mat route would you center it (one foot each side) or have it flush against on side or the other? It is essential to plan every aspect of the project before starting the constructions and the assembly, in order to prevent costly mistakes and to keep the costs under control.
It is essential to choose lumber that is in a very good condition, meaning the boards should be perfectly straight and have no cracks.
Cover the structure with a few coats of light paint, if you want to protect the components from decay and from water damage. In addition, fit a small piece of 1×1 lumber between the two sides of the bird feeder, in order to reinforce the structure.
Smooth the exposed edges and the wooden surfaces with 120-grit sandpaper, along the wood grain.
I saw a post where you suggest using cardboard to level the platform, is this still the best method?
