A Couple of Birdhouses

Since I don't have a Jacob's chuck yet I hollowed them out "by hand".
They're walnut and maple.

Those look nice Slate,
What do you mean 'I had to hollow them out by hand.' Isn't that what you are supposed to be doing? I actually prefer to hollow them with a turning tool. Good practice. You have to be careful with the drill bits anyway on something very small like those. Very easy to blow em apart. Nice job.

I don't mind the hollowing. From my little experience, forstner bits don't like end grain very much anyway.

Nice job on the birdhouses. I like both of them. You did a nice job. I made a bunch of them things this year. Now my daughter asked me to make a couple flat work birdhouses for her yard, just finished up today. Keep up the nice work. Mitch
