    Steve that is a cool little bird feeder. But the bird sound track has to go. Where the h@&l do you live some African jungle. 🙂

    Is it really “unique” since you copied it? What about when 100 other people around the world copy yours?

      It is unique, and if you read the intro, credit is given to Matt McDowell, nice woodworker name Matt.

      There are two of them, at least. How is that “unique”, and what does giving credit to Matt have to do with it?

      I was just yanking Steve’s chain about his choice of adjective, which I’m sure he understands.

    Epic sound track Steve. I don’t recall elephants in Marin County, but i’m not that observant.

    By the time you got to the point of hanging the finished feeder, I was falling off the chair laughing at the soundtrack. Classic.

    After I heard the peacock, I wondered about the authenticity of the “local birds in my area” statement. When I heard the kookaburra Iknew I’d been had. Good on you, Steve!

    Nice Bird feeder. Don’t worry about cleaning up after the birds, just worry about the elephants.

    We’ve got tons of different birds in my neck of the woods – so many i sometimes wonder if i should get rid of my alarm clock! But my wife loves to watch them. She has often urged me to build a bird feeder or something, but i could not be bothered. She even bought one of these cheesy birdhouses – but this thing will never find a place in our backyard. Pretty provocative to buy something like while living with a woodworker….anyways, i have to admit that this swing looks pretty cute and perhaps this could be a good compromise. I can make this using scraps….will updater you once it’s done!

    Those sounds could be in his neighborhood. He might live close to a zoo.

    The birds were so subtle. Hard to hear them with Steve yammering on and on about glue and clamps. 🙂

    Nice job bud!

    Hi Steve,

    Do you sell your Cajon w/ snare? How much if I will buy 1 for my personal use?

    Oh no! I’m making one now. Sorry about the unique, but it was too cool to pass up. Also great site Steve. Just started woodworking again about a week ago after 40 years. Get ideas from your site daily. Thanks!
