Lots of Cedar Trim.
[Photo: Basic feeder is ready for details]
When I placed the feeder onto the workbench yesterday I noticed how light it was. But I knew why. The roof is long and wide, the supports are tall, but aged cedar is not very heavy (compared to, e.g., white pine barnboard) due to low moisture content.
Later, after trim was added to the roof and seed tray, I carried the feeder outside for a "show off" photo.... or two:
"Sweeeet cedar," I say.
Cedar trim dresses up the tray and roof edges.
More to follow.
