I was asked by tapestrymlp to be her partner in the recent Invite Your Partner swap, and since she's a serious fan of all things Harry Potterish, I decided to make her a birdfeeder in the shape of Hogwarts.



I based it on photos of Hogwarts from the movies and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, with a lot of reductions and simplifications. It looks like a cluster of separate buildings but actually is a single hollow box, made mostly of thin plywood. I added windows, doors and details by carving them into pieces of even thinner plywood and gluing them on the outside. Extra bits of thin wood are glued and tacked on for additional mouldings, door frames, etc. I tried to simplify it as much as I possibly could and without making it look too flat, but I wished I could have spent more time on details. (For instance it just kills me that the towers had to be straight all the way down, instead of flaring out at the base the way they ought to. But I'll live with it.) Cheesy



Some of the towers, like the two square ones on the end, are cut from pieces of solid pine, with details carved directly into the wood. I shaped the little pointed roofs on the turrets from pieces of wood and fixed them on with little pieces of dowel or screws. The large, round turret roofs were turned on a wood lathe.



The large Staircase Tower is a piece of heavy cardboard tube, as are most of the smaller towers and turrets. The roofs are all made of thin sheet aluminum, to make them durable for the outdoors. Because of the way the roofs fit together and into the surrounding towers, I had to first make paper patterns by trial-and-error until they mostly fit, then cut and re-cut a series of cardboard mock-ups til I got one that fit well enough to cut in metal. The aluminum, which is sold in hardware stores for roof patching and eavestroughs, is easy to cut and fold with scissors and a straightedge. I fastened the roof pieces together where necessary with pop-rivets and nailed the edges down with tiny brads.



The conical roof of the Staircase tower is removable, as is a section of the roof from the opposite end, to allow birdseed to be poured in. The seed comes out openings cut into the "rocks" under the castle and into the surrounding tray for the birds. The rocks are sawn scraps of pine board, roughly carved into rocky shapes and sealed with a layer of tissue paper and glue. They're glued and screwed to the to the tray and the castle is glued on top of them. I never like to rely just on glue for something like that, but as the edges of the walls are quite thin, there really wasn't anything else to attach them to. I used "No More Nails" adhesive, so I'm hoping it will hold.

While I had a lot of fun building this - too much fun, because it took me weeks past the send-out date Embarrassed - I had made several near-catastrophic errors in planning. First, I roughly sketched out the plan and started cutting out walls, but quickly realized it was going to be too big. So I scaled it down by about 25% and started again. (The final size is about 14" x 22" by 18" high, or 32 cm x 55 cm x 45 cm.) Then I assembled the main body of the castle and the high Astronomy Tower cluster simultaneously (so that I could work on one part while glue was drying on the other) and when I put them together I realized I'd barely allowed enough room for the tower! Then I built a lovely seed tray with little turned wood spindles along the edge (left over from another project), only to realize I'd mis-measured and it wasn't actually long enough to contain the castle. Angry There was no way to alter the dimensions of either, so the tray had to be rebuilt (simpler, this time.) Finally, when it was all finished, and I'd found a box the right size to ship it in, I went to slide it into the box and discovered that I'd measured the height of the tallest tower before I glued the rocky base on the castle, and now it didn't fit into the box. So at the last minute I had to literally saw the top inch off the turret and make it removable! If I had thought it through from the beginning, it would have been much more sensible to make the whole central tower removable for shipping, but I was having too much fun and wasn't paying attention.

I'm not convinced it's the most practical birdfeeder ever made, but I don't think that matters too much. This was the first model building like this I've made, and now I want to make more! I can easily imagine Hogwarts as a multi-occupant birdhouse, for example. That's maybe a bit ambitious, but smaller individual birdhouses with little towers and turrets would be fun too.

It only make sense to me that Wulf is who really made Hogwarts.  Originally, I was in the, "NO!!! That simply can NOT be used as a bird feeder!!"...but then he said the birds had a right to pretend to be wizards and witches, and now I'm in the, "It's a perfect bird feeder!" department Grin Amazing as normal Wulf Grin

What a brilliant piece.  A great idea to make a Hogwarts for birds - "Hawkwarts" perhaps - although the intention is obviously to feed seed eaters only.  I would love to have such a bird feeder in my garden.  It will look stunning when it is surrounded and covered with the birds all coming for the grain.

Thanks for sharing your process...it is fascinating..even the bits where you think you "goofed"....it turned out really exceptional...the seed delivery is well thought out as well so that seed is dispersed all around...

A project worth waiting for...

I'm just about gobsmacked!  What a tremendously tremendous project. And for a swap!  I don't even know from Hogwarts, but I know this is an amazing feat.  From the beginning of the post I wondered, "how did he ship that?" and then you told us.  May I ask how much it weighs?  And how someone can ever live with the knowledge that birds are going to defecate on it?  GAH!

Also, I'd like to throw "Hogwarbler's" in to the ring for possible silly names.

I need to figure out a way to put the bird feeder in our yard so that it's easily moved inside. That way I can have it out during the spring but bring it inside during winter or when it storms. Wulf wants a picture of the feeder covered in birds and I have to admit that's an enchanting idea Cheesy I am the lucky recipient of the bird feeder if you hadn't guessed.

I'd like to post mount the castle, but that might be a tricky proposition. It's meant to be hung from each of the four corners with eye bolts. I may hang it on the edge of our porch. My husband and I are still working out the logistics.

Pictures really don't do the castle justice, it's amazing and I am soooooooooooo lucky to have been Wulf's partner for this swap Cheesy Courage pays off sometimes so never be afraid to ask one of your craftster crushes to dance in an IYP swap with you.

What a fun and completely insane project. But once you have a vision, it is hard to stop.

You are SO right about that! Almost from the moment I had the original idea, I thought "This is going to get out of hand." And it did. And I'm glad.

I didn't think it was that heavy, in fact I was pleased that I'd managed to keep the weight down. Then when I got it to the post office, the scale said 4.92 kg. Yikes! That and the dimensions (even with the top bit lopped off) made it expensive to mail. But I knew it would be, and I kept going anyway!  Cheesy

Sorry, Jenn, one of the items on my list of things I intended to do but ran out of time for, was a pole-mounting plate. So I'm afraid you'll have to add it yourself. I'll put together a PM of instructions/suggestions for it.

Glad everyone liked it, and thanks for the Potterish bird puns. Always appreciated! And you all got me thinking of additional castles to make. Gormenghast would have to be at the top of the list, of course. I'll get right on it.

Oh I'd love to see your rendition of Gormenghast. Congrats on being featured! You're project and mine are in the same "Featured Projects" set which is utterly thrilling. I'm trying to brainstorm a mounting plate that will allow the feeder to be easily removed from the post and yet secure. I need to put on my tinkerer's hat and take off my crafty hat for a bit I think.

The best part about this being picked as a Best Of eleven months later is that I'd pretty much forgotten all about it, so I got to read through my post almost as if it was by someone else!

It is a bit hard to believe anyone would actually make something like that, isn't it? But then, I've thought exactly that at least a half-dozen times in the last few minutes, looking at the other Best Of winners!

Have you noticed the birds around your house carrying wands or casting spells recently? They must be picking up some magic in this INCREDIBLE feeder. Truly awesome, Wulf.

Congratulations on being featured in the best of list for 2014!!
