Grandma's bird feeder

I gave the plans to my grandma for Christmas and told her we could make it together in the summer. So Dylan (9) designed the plan and we started building it on the deck that summer. But the project grew from the plans and we could not hang it in the tree it was too big and too heavy so we had to put it on a pole with slinkys to deter the squirrels. Dylan designed, measured, sawed, sanded and painted the bird house with little assistance and using Grandpa's Ryobi tools. I LOVE IT
