Repurposed Twin Bird Silverplate Platters Bird Feeder


I've been wanting to use this partitioned silverplate server for a while and finally got after it. The ends of spoons make for perches and some serve as the support points for the suspending chains. The small candy dish made a great top and the birds came from some ornate napkin holders. This one has the option of putting out two different bird seed varieties with the partition in the middle. Small holes were drilled in the bottom for any drainage needs with rain.

    How did you join everything together? solder? This absolutely gives me goosebumps, it's such a beautiful combination of things I love best...birds, silver and whimsy!

      Definitely solder. I also used a propane torch since it's heavy/thicker metals I wanted to join.

    What kind of bit did you use to drill holes?

      When drilling holes into metal I mostly use self tapping screws to complete or start a hole. I find it’s much more economical to use them vs destroying drill bits and uni bits. 👍

    I've been planning something like this. I didn't think of the spoon handles for perches though. I'm going to try using E6000 glue instead of soldering.
