I hope you enjoyed today's featured project and don't forget to stop by "The Poultry People" YouTube channel to check out even more great DIY and woodworking projects from them. Don't forget to subscribe!

We hope you will return to Simply Easy DIY everyday through the month of November for more projects that make us thankful 4 DIY.

Until then!
