Birdhouses and a Box

Got about 10 more birdhouses lined up. Woods are a mix of maple, walnut and cherry.

Tim, the birdhouses look great. Are you going to put little birds on the perches?

I also really like the little lidded box. very nice!

Slat,
You can get the little birds at local craft stores normally pretty cheap.They also sell brass looking stands that are usually under a buck.

Those birdhouses look fantastic. I love them. Also, aren't "boxes" square or rectangular? [/smartass]

thanks all. I'll look for the birdies and "under a buck" stands 'cause that brass rod is a little pricey.

And that box is square it's just missing a few corners..

Tim,
Here's a pic of the little birds and the stands. They also sell the little eyelets that screw into the top. I use a piece of monofilm fishing line to hang them from. The perches are 1/8" brass rod that I round the ends over and buff them. The birds are glued on with medium c/a glue

very nice bird house. I like making my own stands too with 1/8 inch brass rods and walnut for the bases.
