|Like the Little Black Dress, you can dress this up or down – a simple design to emulate|
Always, I’m grateful to neighbours for giving me ideas to steal copy emulate. That metal tube with its holes looks tip-of-the-tongue familiar – but I have no idea what it is. If you do, please tell us.
However, a 4×4 wooden post might work nearly as well (though easier for squirrels to climb). Drill holes for some 1/2″ copper pipe and add elbows at the ends to serve as a hooks. Done. You could pretty it up any way you want, but what a handy smorgasbord for the birds. What do you think?
Love it! No idea what the metal tube is but having those pre-drilled holes is certainly handy. Now if I could only find an easy way to keep the squirrels out of the feeders!
A friend suggested (and Google thinks she's right) that it's an old building jack pole — that you'd use to temporarily support a joist. That's why it looked so familiar to me. If it was smooth metal, it *might* slow those critters down a little bit.
This is awesome! Grateful for you guys!
Glad you like it, and thanks!
I love the bird feeder. I actually don't have bird feeders out anymore and it's because of a bear in the neighborhood. Squirrels are no biggie!
The pole is the metal support post used in basements (or used to be used) to support the main floor beams. Great idea!
Great idea, always looking for new ways to hang bird feeders.
