    You may want to make the feed pan detachable for cleaning :)

    My son built me one. Instead of building the grain box on the front he added a 2x4 across there and I bought a plastic feed box for about $3.50 to hang on the front. It works great.

    If anyone wants one he can cut the boards and drill the holes, then send it as a kit for you to nail together. He numbers the ends of the boards so all you do is connect #1 to #1, #2 to #2, etc. PM me if you'd like to contact him about it.

    If you scroll down the article says that the feedbox has a removable floor..GREAT idea..you can clean it without taking off the entire feedbox and the having to re-attach it. Looks good to me !
