DON'T MISS THE UPDATE AT THE END!! Made from copper and glass, this diy bird feeder is squirrel proof! It allows birds to enter to get to the bird seed but prevents squirrel entry. Most small birds can enter holes 1" to 1.5" and squirrels can get into a hole not much smaller than a 2" hole as you can see in my little test video where I determined the smallest size hole that a squirrel could enter.




Bird feeder guards can be pretty ugly and are not very aesthetic but this bird feeder actually looks elegant and sleek with the patina of the old copper pipe and glass. Easy to fill and very easy to clean-out. Seed stays dry due to the solar effect of the glass. The bird feeder is see through so watching birds in your yard will become even better and more entertaining as the squirrels attempt to get to the bird seed and fail. I used my new Gopro "session" camera and got some pretty interesting shots of the birds as they enter from inside and outside the feeder!!

---------------------------------------PARTS LIST-------------------------------------------
1) 1.5" (3.8cm) salvaged copper pipe cut into 3/4"(19mm) lengths
2) Salvaged window glass. I used 0.2"(5mm) thick glass which is pretty strong, you could use thinner. You'll need 2 pieces for the sides 16" x 11 1/2"( 40cm x 30cm) and 1 piece for the bottom 16" x 10 3/4"
(40cm x 27cm)
3) Salvaged seat belt material for the bird feeder door hinge.
4) All purpose silicone to hold all parts of the bird feeder together.
5) 7" x 11"x 3/4" (18cm x 28cm x 19mm) salvaged plywood for the base.
6) 4x4x 7"(9cm x 9cm) salvaged fence post
7) 1.5" (3.8cm) drill spade bit for bird feeder pole
8) 1.5" (3.8cm) galvanized fence pipe to mount the bird feeder onto.
