Wood Chicken Feeder Plans
The first step of the project is to build the sides for the wooden chicken feeder. As you can see in the free plans, you need to cut 2 pieces of 1×6 lumber at 10″. Next, use a saw to make the cuts to the slat, as shown in the diagram. Smooth the edges with sandpaper.
The next step of the project is to attach the bottom slat to the sides. Align the edges with attention and make sure the corners are square. Drill pilot holes through the side components and then insert 1 5/8″ screws into the bottom slat. Add glue to the joints and leave no gaps between the components.
Attach the 1×6 slats to the chicken feeder, as shown in the plans. Align the slats at both ends and then insert 1 5/8″ screws to lock them into place tightly. Add glue to the joints and leave no gaps between the components.
Last but not least, you need to attach the handle to the simple chicken feeder. Therefore, cut a piece of 1×3 lumber and then attach it to the feeder, as shown in the plans. Align the edges with attention and leave no gaps between the components. Drill pilot holes through the sides and insert 1 5/8″ screws to lock everything together tightly.
Last, but bot least apply wood putty to the holes and then smooth everything thoroughly with 120-220 grit sandpaper.
