I made two of these hampers. I agree with j.mccall. It is easier to lift and carry two smaller boxes than one big one.

These were made out of a couple of small sheets of 3mm MDF, and a few metres of dressed pine.

The most expensive bits were the aluminium rod, the paint, and the hinges and bolts.

I do not like open topped hampers. Birds instinctively try to fly upwards, and open tops stress them.

As I explained it to a bloke, I wouldn't be sending my race horse to Epsom in a cattle truck.

@mizmo Not going to look as pro as those mizmo, but being the total cheapskate I just bought a couple of these for £8.40 each

I figured I could cut out holes for external feeder/water and fix a light ply top on, solid bases so stackable, and plastic so can pressure wash them off maybe.  I'll put up a picture when I get it done 🙂
