Step 1 Measure and Mark 7 Pieces of Wood
Take 5 feet of a 2 x 10 x 8 foot SPF dimension Lumber board and lay it out on a stable surface. Measure each part of the bird feeder for assembly. Our first piece will be the back piece which measures 12 x 6 inches. Using this first piece of wood, cut two 45-degree angle cuts in the middle along the 6-inch edge, meeting in the centre of the wood where the roof will sit.
Next, mark up your bottom piece. This is a 6 x 6-inch square piece where the bird food will sit. To ensure the food stays in place, you will need two 4 x 1 1/2-inch side pieces and one 2 x 1 1/2-inch piece for the front.
Lastly, mark out one 4-inch piece and one 3-inch piece. These will act as your roof for the bird feeder. You will then overlap the 4-inch piece on top of the 3-inch one to create a triangular roof.
