Handmade Bird Tables at Gyrn Cottage

Handcrafted at Gyrn Cottage, your Bird Table will enhance your garden with character and attract garden birds to your garden.

Handmade to high standards each Bird Table is unique with its own individual rustic qualities and built to an exceptionally high standard.

Our Bird Tables offer stability and solid construction using marine grade plywood and using FSC certified timber sourced from sustainable forests, and pressure treated (tanalised) with Green Osmose AE500 providing resistance to rot, and hand painted with Cuprinol “Wild Thyme” weatherproof protection that is safe for birds, plants and pets, and completed with SIGA fibre cement slate roofing, with a 30-year structural stability performance.

As this is a heavy duty bird table it is recommended that it is installed into the ground, so the base comes with a spike taper coated in bitumen below ground level to prevent rot. We can convert the base to a standing base at an extra cost of £30.

All this ensures a Bird Table which look great all year round in sunshine and rain and can be enjoyed year after year.

We are able offer you with a custom Bird Table painted to your own preferences from the range of Cuprinol Garden Shades to complement the natural colours in your garden and to allow the texture of the wood grain to show through. Custom colours are £10 extra.

Please allow 2 WEEKS for us to make your bird table and feel free to ask any questions.

You are welcome to purchase and collect your Bird Table directly from Gyrn Cottage in Selattyn, Shropshire to save on shipping costs.

Assembly & Installation

Your Bird Table will be delivered in two parts; the actual Bird Table and the pointed base post stake.

At your chosen location, a hole should be dug to a depth of some 18 inches / 50 cm and the post stake inserted vertically, and the hole backfilled and tamped down to provide ground stability to the post. In areas with weather issues, it may be prudent to set the post in the ground using post concrete easily available from DIY stores.

To resist rot, bitumen coating has been applied to the pointed base post stake for some 18 inches/50cm that goes into the ground.

To assemble the Bird Table, simply place the Bird Table on to the post base stand and tighten the two bolts through the pre-drilled holes using the bolt / wing nut fixings supplied.

Looking after your Bird Table

Siting your Bird Table in a quiet location with a good view from the house and sheltered from extremes of weather will provide observation and enjoyment of the garden birds.

Consider hanging feeders with bird seed or peanuts to attract different species and to add variety and interest to your garden

For the first few months, you may notice some changes in the wood. Although our Bird Tables are treated, it is important to remember that as a natural timber product, there may be variants in size, shrinkage, splits or cracks in hot weather, swelling in wet weather, and will contain knots.

Cleaning your Bird Table regularly by brushing off any debris when putting out fresh food, and a quick hose pipe wash now and again is also recommended.
