This is only the second "square" license plate bird feeder I've made to date (the first one I use). It's a very tedious process getting the frame just right. I use a vintage silverplate spoon to make the awning over the exterior feeding hole. It keeps the seeds from spilling all the way out. Supplemental seed spills slowly out of the bottom cut holes. Vintage electric fan blades compliment the top. I fabricated a screw-on handle on top with a vintage water faucet handle and bolt. Used chrome dog tags surround the perimeter of the porcelain enamel plate.
