I tool some old cedar wood that was cut down and made it in to a table. First I had to go and find the logs that would be dry enough to use then I cut them in to the size I wanted. Then I made a simple jig for my table saw and took the logs to lumber. The hard part is to make sure you do not get logs that are to big. It is more of branches. You just cut then on three sides till you have three flat sides. Then you set your fence to how thick you would like your boards. Then you just lay everything out and decided where you want your birds to go. Then you cut and glue the boards on to some plywood. Set hot long you want your legs. Finally sand till it is smooth, and finish it all off with some lacked.
