Make a Saloon Bird Feeder – Easy DIY Weekend Woodworking Project



Here’s a saloon-style bird feeder that is sure to attract attention from all the night owls out there. It’s made from two inexpensive 6-foot untreated fence boards from the local home center (since pressure-treated boards might be harmful to our feathered friends). It has three bar stools and wooden bottles on the bar. Birds are sure to flock to this saloon for the best wings in town!
