Step 1: What You Need
- Glue. I'm using Loctite Stik'n Seal here
Toosl (not pictured):
- Dremel or saw
Step 2: Gluing in Pairs
- Run a bead of glue down the middle of the pair
- Roll them inwards so the glue gets between the two chopsticks
- Use a q-tip to wipe off the excess glue
Step 3: Glue Together Sections
Section A (left side) - Two sets of 20 chopsticks each. I kept these separate at first to create a pitched roof, but ended up joining them later for a flat roof.
Section B (top right) - 4 chopsticks for the bottom of the trough
Section C (right side) - Two sets of 6 chopsticks each for the sides of the trough
Step 4: Finish the Roof
Step 5: Trough
Step 6: Add Supports
Step 7: Add the Roof and Rests
Now we just need a place for the birds to sit. Add a couple pair to extend out from the trough and a couple more pair to connect those and make a place to sit.
And there you have it! A comfy feeder for the birds. Just hang it, add some seeds, and you're done!
