Monthly Project - Michael's birdhouse

Post by dhellew2 »

Slightly modified for smaller birds.
Mitered corners reduced the depth 1.5 inches.
Roof is flush on the back for mounting on a pole.
Air vents are full length on top of walls which are angle cut towards outside.

LASER etched instead of vcarve.
Paint by Debbie.
Walls are natural pine with laser and clear finish.


Clean-out is by removing bottom, inside corner pieces align bottom on the top side.

Super-good, Dale and Debbie!

I love the modifications and laser-work alternative to v-carving. Looks great!

I really like the way you created the bottom clean-out panel and made good use of the miter scraps at the corners.
