    Easy auto chicken feeder : DadOfFour
    Thanks! I did a lot of online research and found a number of PVC feeders. My goal was to make the food flow without interruption, even in moist environments, try to limit rodent access and make it easily refillable. I believe this feeder is unique because of the way the angles are connected (45 first, 90 last) and the last angled  lip. The lip seems to deter the rodents and almost eliminated any spill of food. Chickens can be supper messy and splash the food out of whatever they eat from. 
    Additionally, the food level devise is fantastic! I can see if the birds need a refill from across the property. That is solely my design and really just came about from thinking the whole process through. From building to daily use.

    Grandmas Bowl : DadOfFour
    Thank you! The glue up is actually fairly easy because it is a flat surface. Cutting the rings correctly and turning it are the stressful processes. Trying to “see” the final outcome from a flat to a semi sphere is definitely the most challenging part of the whole process.

    I’m sure she will! She lives out of state so we need to plan a trip to see her.

    • Neat idea! Did you think of this yourself?

    • That is incredible.   The glue up alone must have been a challenge.

    • This is so impressive and intriguing! It's hard to imagine that a flat piece of wood can become such a beautiful bowl!!

    Gate Archway : DadOfFour
    I will say that getting the 60-75 lbs. structure 10’ in the air and over the two support 4x4s, by myself, caused it’s own set of challenges.  Some creative lever and pulley actions mixed with moving blankets, bar clamps and extending ladders somehow made it happen. Stressful!!

    Gate Archway : DadOfFour
    The biggest challenge was not having the appropriate tools for the job. As an example, I really needed a drill press. I used a level and the one+ drill/driver to drill holes through both sides of the 2x12, 4x4, 2x12 stack. Additionally, I did some creative hammering to get the 7” carriage bolts through evenly.

    Our big Kitchen Table : DadOfFour
    It helps that the littlest of our children can’t reach across the table and mess with each other   Ha ha ha.  Additionally, when we have company everyone can still sit together!
