Marmaduke’s Wildlife Woodwork

p1050273After the success he had making a traditional North of England wooden stool, (a cracket), Marmaduke has been looking around for his next project.  He and I had a few words of disagreement about making a mess in the garret, but as usual he has got his way.

So now he’s got lots of board-feet of treated timber, and he’s going to make a bird table.  (For the life of me I can’t remember what bird tables are called in the USA.)

The garret is full of pressure treated out-doors type wood.


And Marmaduke says that he’s going to make something like this.


I said he should hurry up and get it done.  For; the north wind doth blow, and we shall have snow, and what will poor Robyn do then, poor thing?

    1. He’s so good with his little paws. ❤


  3. How wonderful . Marmaduke is a very clever bear. Small birds struggle through the winter months for food. Greedy seagulls and pigeons always get there first. Well done Marmaduke thinking about little wild birds 😊

  4. In the U.S. we call them bird houses! Or bird feeders if it is just the little mechanism that feeds them. I love Marmaduke!

    1. Marmaduke is a very clever teddy bear, but I think he likes compliments from you ladies a bit too much. ❤
