You are an exceptionally handy guy!

I remember one year we made a (As they were called then Dancing Men) for each family, now they are called Limber Jacks.

Our were all painted up in Tux's with googly eyes. They were a lot of fun. My parents still have one.

It was kinda like this

I recently got a copy of some plans drawn by my grandpa in 1977, it was really neat to study his plans.

the feeder its self isn't anything spectacular but the neat thing to me is the history of the plan.
A little more info can be found on my woodworking blog.

My in-laws gave me a brand of a "M" for Christmas so I used it to mark the project along with signing it.

Thanks for sharing Chuck, looks like you got a marketable talent there. And I am guessing its almost as much fun as wrenching on our tractors!

I got the bird feed put up this weekend. Last winter we lost a cedar tree in a ice storm and I had saved the trunk sections. So I used a section of the trunk as a pole to mount the feeder on.

Looks good, but I'd put something on the post to discourage climbing, especially for squirrels. Kitty cats come to mind, also.

The squires don't come up in the yard, and if the cat climbs it to much I will replace it with a metal pole.

The deer actually come up in the yard more than the squires.

I may deer hunt out of the kids play set net year.
