i feed wild pigeons, birds that come into my garden everyday

anyone know of a suitable bird stand table?
my current old wooden stand needs replacing

i seen this video on a bird table stand link is

and as its custom made i think it makes the table itself much more expensive also

i seen these types of bird feeder stands else were on a site and local garden centre but are so much smaller than in the video
the stand in the video is 24 inches so much bigger than i seen else were
again else were i seen on a site and at my local garden centre are much smaller so not really suitable for bigger birds only sparrows

i like how it has a roof to help keep seeds dry in rain
also the birds not be on the ground

this feeder in the video you think suitable for pigeons?
anyone know of other options that are good for pigeons?
am in greater manchester area north west

I use a couple of the bird bath feeder combos and big birds such as wood pigeons have no problems feeding from them

Mine have a top on as well so more or less the same as those, they cost between 12 and 18 pounds each

We only have various feeders hanging around the garden in various trees etc and do have a couple of bespoke stands with feeders on them, we only usually half fill the feeders so that the birds clear them daily. This way we don't have too much trouble with seed getting wet as its not there long, the bigger birds tend to clear what is spilt on the floor so we hopefully don't end up with a rat problem either 🤞 I would like a nice bird table but as you say they are either very flimsy or very expensive, there is plenty of choice in the garden centres and DIY stores and even a few in the bigger supermarkets. I would try making one if I were you, it would be a nice little project for you 🤠👍 look forward to hearing or seeing what you come up with, all the best.
