BIRD TABLES

The bird table market is well served by folks marketing smaller non-descript bird tables and that’s their choice. However, at Granddad Rob’s we choose to make tables for the more discerning customer who is seeking not just a bird feeder, but needs an imposing bird table capable of being a prime feature in any garden.

FEATURES

UNDERGROUND STABILIZERS:

Fitted just below grass level this is an effective way of stabilizing the table and alleviates the need to resort to concreting. We use this method with our far bigger and heavier dovecotes.

POST

Pressure treated sections are glued and pinned together to form the post (like a ships mast). This forms an extremely strong post and gives multiple layers of treatment into the ground.

ANTI BIG BIRD. (New, July 2019)

The archways have small vertical bars which dissuades pigeons and alike ’hogging’ the bird table. The fine bars are dark so as to maintain the aesthetics of the archways.

MATERIALS

I learnt a long-time back that to use cheap materials is penny wise and pound foolish.

TIMBERS:

Roof, platters, brackets and walls are pressure treated joinery grade red pine.

ROOF:

G’Robs own distinctive tile effect 20mm thick, pressure treated, shiplap boards.

PINNACLE:

Weathered with hand dressed lead and topped off with a bespoke complementary hand turned finial. (not something off the shelf at the local fencing company).

PLATTERS:

Pressure treated 45mm thick solid boards.

POST:

Pressure treated sections are glued and pinned together to form the post (like a ships mast). This forms an extremely strong post and gives multiple layers of treatment into the ground.

DELIVERY & VAT

The tables and roofs are shipped fully assembled with a separate post. Against the trend we have always endeavoured to set out our stall with the price shown to include DELIVERY and VAT, so no hidden charges to ‘bump up’ the bill. Therefore, the price listed includes delivery for the UK Mainland (Highlands & Overseas please contact us) and assumes any options required are ordered and delivered with the principle purchase.

BESPOKE

I relish the opportunity to make bespoke bird tables. If you have a ‘wanting’ then please contact us, the worst that can happen is that we say “no” but it’s not happened yet.

PAINTING

Painted bird tables are still made from pressure treated timber over which is applied five paint coats. Normally painted white, however should you have a specific colour requirement and are able to supply us with a colour code number, we will endeavour to oblige.

BIRD TABLE STYLES

ASCOTE BIRD TABLE:

With its ‘lantern style’ enclosed platter and the secondary platter under the ASCOTE BIRD TABLE is arguable the more architectural of our bird tables. The Ascote is the table we are most frequently requested to paint often in the customers chosen colour. I assume to compliment the gardens colour scheme.

LINGFIELD BIRD TABLE:

Being a more traditional style of bird table the Lingfield is the table of choice for my wife who being an avid bird watcher likes the open aspect of this bird table which enables her to more easily observe the birds. However, against my express wishes she has festooned my/her Lingfield table with hanging feeders, giving my carefully considered work a semblance of an Aussie ‘out-backer’.
