This beautiful and unique bird feeder is designed and hand made by The Natural Wood Company.
AS FEATURED IN THE TIMES GOOD GARDEN GUIDE 2018!
The perfect all year round gift for the bird lover and gardener.
Supplied with its own stainless steel hanging wire with clips, the feeder can be hung anywhere, the branch of a tree, as part of an already busy feeding station, or hanging quietly on a secluded balcony.
The bottom half of the feeder acts as a deep seed trough, and the slightly oversize top as a shelter, to keep the seed dry and allow small birds (Blue Tit's etc.) to actually get inside the feeder to graze at their leisure.
The feeder’s perfectly smooth round body suspended by the supplied 45cm thin wire makes it virtually impossible for squirrels to access the seed, it's actually satisfyingly funny to watch the squirrels puzzled faces as they try to get to the seed.
The Oak feeders are available in four sizes: small, medium, large & extra large and look great hanging together as a set.
GIFT BOX OPTION: If required, the feeders (we have no gift boxes available for the extra large at the moment) can be packed in a beautiful made to measure, black or kraft gift box wrapped in a bed of tissue. We can also add a personal note to a tag attached to the feeder inside the box. The gift box is enclosed in a double thickness outer box, on delivery all you have to do is remove the outer postal box and your gift is ready.
It’s turned from a single block of locally sourced English Oak and finished using 4 coats of our secret recipe acrylic lacquer, then burnished to a smooth semi gloss finish, so it can stay out in all weathers all year round.
All the timber we use is the very best locally sourced we can find and is always obtained sustainably, for example, some pieces are crafted from fallen or storm damaged trees on local private estates. It’s then air-and or kiln-dried for at least 12 months before being used to make a beautifully functional product. We also try to make sure all our packaging is made from natural, sustainable materials, using recycled card and paper whenever possible. Always working hard to maintain and improve The Natural Wood Company’s reputation for designing and making beautiful products for the home and garden.
The 4 sizes available to order are:
Small 105 mm (4 inches) diameter
Medium 130 mm (5 inches) diameter
Large 170 mm (7 inches) diameter
Extra Large 230 mm (9 inches) diameter
Being completely hand made of natural materials, all sizes are approximate + - a few millimetres.
(Please note that The Natural Wood Company bird feeders were designed and refined over a several years before they were marketed. All four sizes are designed to not only be a beautiful addition to your garden, but to work well as bird feeders, and they all do. All birds can feed from the side of all three sizes but small birds i.e. Blue tits, sparrows & finches etc. will actually get inside the medium and large & extra large feeders, the small feeder is designed to allow the birds to feed from the side.)
