  • Make cuts

    Make all your cuts according to the cut list and sand.

  • Assemble legs

    Assemble legs in a-frame design. You can use nail gun, nails, screws, anything to join.

  • Connect legs

    Connect the legs with the two connector pieces. We used a nail gun.

  • Add top

    Add the table top.

  • Stain or finish as desired

    Apply your desired finish. Since this will go outside, you will need an outdoor grade stain or sealant unless you used outdoor wood. Your choice is something like treated lumber, cedar, or to seal with an outdoor sealant. Otherwise, it will rot in the elements.

  • Mount

    Drill directly through the back connector piece into your tree or fence. Select a spot that you can easily see from your window!
    Top with your favorite squirrel or bird treats. Expect it to take a day or two before they feel comfortable stopping by for a snack.
