part three square bale feeder

i got some hinges from bob. he has a little of everything. i built the doors and hung them. they were warping a little funny so i had to re adjust the hinges to try to compensate. in the end i had to stress the doors using diagonal supports and a little shim in the middle. this warped the doors back the other direction. i also made a little hasp.

the kids got to help paint the primer coat. mostly they just made a big mess but they had fun.

tomorrow we'll paint the the final color. it is a much darker rich blue. i hope it ends up looking cute.

That looks so good and is so resourceful of you!! But I do think Toly has about as much paint on himself as on the feeder! Bet they had a blast "helping."
