A Nesting Material Rack.

I enjoy working with pieces of bark and driftwood, but if these are not available cedar boards work well. All that is needed for this project is a wood top and bottom, a small lath and a suet cage, with the door removed, a piece of cord or wire.
Place the cage on the top, in the centre. This is only for measurements. Mark where the sides are and in the middle of the wood.
A hole is drilled here for the hanging cord or wire. The pencil shows the spot. Drill both holes on each side of the cage.
Cut the lath the length of the cage. Hold it in place with the bottom side up. Again this is only for marking at this time. Mark two places at opposite ends like the cross shown here.
Drill two holes for screws to go through. Attaching cages to wood is rather awkward, washers can be used but this method works well for this.
Place the cage on the wooden bottom in the desired location. Insert the lath and screw it through the cage into the wooden base. This base will give the birds a platform to stand on.
The cord or wire for hanging should go in through the second opening as shown. Fasten one end and then feed it through the underside of the top and back through the top of the other hole. Fasten the cord to the cage in the same manner. This enables the top to be raised for access to the cage for filling.
Stuff the cage with hair, moss, lichens, spider webs and many other nesting materials to keep your birds happy.
