Needed to hang a bird feeder above the deck railing away from squirrels. From lumber stash, screwed two 1"x2"x8' lengths together to create 2"x2"x8'. Created base with 1"x4"x10" boards on either side. Painted with black exterior paint to blend in with balcony doors and railing. Secured bird feeder ti 2" side (also secured 1x2's together). Secured feeder to railing with black cord (salvaged from shopping bag). Hung feeders; hopper and suet. Now I get to enjoy watching cardinals, sparrows, morning doves, woodpeckers, chickadees, etc from my 'office' window.
