Welcome back to another episode of Withjack Workshops! Today I'm going to be showing you how to make a gravity fed self-filling bird feeder from an empty wine bottle. For this you will just need about 4 feet of pressure treated 1x6 deck boards, an empty wine bottle, and a free weekend.
Here's the link for the glass cutter I used: https://goo.gl/jlQ9ZT It's placed in a small jig I made for scoring bottles. It's effective about 75% of the time, other times the bottle slips or the score isn't perfect and the glass doesn't part well. They are easy to make, just take your time and watch for sharp glass pieces! After you score the glass, place it under cold water, and then hit it with boiling water. Do this back and forth a few times and the bottle will split along the score line. It sometimes takes a few tries to get right, just keep trying!
Withjack Workshops is a series of DIY videos showcasing fun and easy projects ranging anywhere from woodworking, restoration, and electronics of all kinds. The projects run the spectrum of easy to difficult, needing certain tools to accomplish but still easily completed by yourself. This particular video is a part of the series where I'm creating items for my Etsy shop to be sold online or just for the heck of it to try my hand at creating something new for the enjoyment of making, in which I can only hope it inspires you to make something yourself.
