I remember seeing your work on Craftster. I love what you do. It's so amazing to see so many beautiful houses for our feathered friends.

I built a few nest boxes this year for the first time. I can't even imagine building something this big. Nice. Very nice.

dam you, i was out in the shop working and finished early, looked down and seen a bunch of scrap.

was ready to toss into the kindling pile and remembered your thread,

so seeing as i wasn't in a hurry, i started ripping scrap up, it wasn't long and i had me some material,

i just wanted you to know, it was only to get rid of my scraps. well there comes a point when your ripping down scrap and then your ripping new material lol very addictive hahaha

i wish i would of done a blue print but i like to do it by eye as i go and fix mistakes as they come, its the mark of a good carpenter hahaha

i still have some work to do yet, stone fireplace, landscaping etc. all in due time though. its only a 3500 square inch lol

That is a very impressive looking birdhouse ! You really came up with a great design too !! I,m sure the birds will love it too

Birdhouses can be very addictive when you have a great imagination .

thanks cranbrook, if it wasn't for your thread i would of never thought to do one like this

oh ive done birdhouses before ya know ya whip 10 out in 30 minutes type deal

you looked at it in different eyes and see what ya did

for newbs this is really the project they need to do to learn, if you scale it down its really the same deal, as far as angles and all


ripping small stuff down requires addons to the saw for safety.

Well anything to itself!
Simply fine! I didn't see it earlier.

The big starling house very much resembles Russian style.
Thanks.
