Top Loading Suet Feeder.

Two side uprights are required, 1 and 1/2 inches, approximately the depth of the cage by an inch. Slightly longer than the height of the suet cage with the opening lid at the top.
Another piece of 1 and 1/2 inch wood for the base is cut to length by adding the width of the cage and the two side uprights together.
The tail base is the same width as the bottom piece and 7 inches long.
The top can be a piece of bark if available, or any other piece of timber. Three inches by 10 or 12 inches will cover the cage and the top of the uprights.
Open the cage, and on the underside of the top, secure the door in the centre as shown using a couple of wire staples.
When finished the cage will swing up and out, allowing a suet block to be pushed inside.
With the bottom wood cut to the correct length, it can be nailed onto the two uprights.
When the uprights have been fastened on, the section can be nailed onto the tail piece.
The roof is layed onto the uprights and the cage should fit between them.
Making sure that the cage is fitted in properly, flush with the uprights, nail the top onto the sides.,
When the cage is pushed back, a suet block can be pushed in.
To keep the cage in the closed position when the birds come to it, a turn button can be screwed on to one of the sides. On the left closed and on the right open. This was an old key with part of it broken off.
An easy way to hang the feeder is with a cord. Drill a small hole at each end of the roof, just outside of the uprights. Make it large enough for the cord to pass through. A screw with a washer is screwed in an inch down. Wrap the end of the cord around the screw and then tighten the screw.
