- 1 Board , 1x3 , 96"
Hardware & Supplies
- 20 Nails
Cut List & Parts
- 3 Tops , 10"
- 2 Seats , 10"
- 4 Legs , 6"
- 2 Braces , 13"
Make all your cuts according to the cut list and sand.
Assemble legs in a-frame design. You can use nail gun, nails, screws, anything to join.
Connect the legs with the two connector pieces. We used a nail gun.
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.
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.
