I found this strangely fulfilling, so a week or so later I set about making a bird table, as the current one was on its last legs (you can just about see it in the background).

Apart from buying some rough sawn wood for the stand, most of the table was built from an old palette that I rescued from the bins at my workplace. Some other materials kicking around the garage finished the job.

I decided that I would try to build another bird table, but one that was more challenging. More angles, detail etc… Project Hex was conceived. More to follow soon…
