Great looking feeders! Cool design.

A tip on exterior joints that are going to be painted -. Use some painttable caulk on less than perfect joints then paint. Can hide all kinds of "design errors" DAMHIKT!

Wow, those are A list bird feeders. And the birds don't care if the miter joints are super tight. Now, figure out how to keep the squirrels out and you have the "new mousetrap".

If you are going to paint then assemble, you might try a urethane based caulk. Goes on the color it dries at and as a bonus, is paint able if someone wants to re work the color scheme later. Also if you wipe your joints smooth with a solvent wetted rag, you glue and hide defects at the same time. I dare you to pull those joints apart 24 hours later. A 1 inch square of fabric will tear before coming loose from that stuff. Been there done that. Threw it away...
