Birdhouses from palletsand giving a helping hand. This is a classic, birdhouses, a project that always make me happy to make.It’s a simple easy beginner project, but also a rewarding project, where you can park your brain for a few hours and just enjoy working wood and imagine the life, that will come in these little houses. The reason these bird houses came to life, was the fact that someone had left a pallet in front of an antique shop situated in the house I live, the owner is ...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #11: Bird house from weathered deck wood

02-21-2019 04:22 PM by sras | 8 comments »

This project build is from 2015. I gave it away before I took pictures of the completed birdhouse. Last fall I finally took some pictures. This started with a pile of boards salvaged from a worn out deck. There were a couple pieces of tight grain fir in the pile that caught my interest. So I grabbed a few pieces. I re-sawed the worn wood away with the idea that the underlying tight grain fir would be of interest. However, once the weathered wood was cut away, the fir wasn’t al...

In this video I wanted to let the kids something. Now they are too young to use powertools in the shop, but they can assemble projects. We decided to build some birdhouses and recycle some license plates that I had laying around. Check out the video and subscribe to see the latest videos….and the not so latest. View on YouTube

Virtual Designs in Sketchup #18: How to design a Gazebo Bird House

12-27-2012 06:04 AM by rance | 10 comments »

A fellow LJ member(Belg1960) was asking about designing an Octagon Birdhouse a while back. He recently contacted me and asked if I would show him how I would do it in SketchUp. I thought I would make this public for all to see. The method that Jim Jakosh provided was certainly a good one. Every woodworker would benefit from understanding math as much as Jim does. Me, I tend to lean more on SU to do my math. The SU method I am presenting here is but one SU approach. There are other ways to ...

Building my dream shop #16: Where did the time go?

12-23-2011 09:22 PM by rep | 2 comments »

Did not realize it had been so long since I posted. Decided to go ahead and build a finishing room in the shop (temporary spare bedroom). Need to have a place for visitors over the holiday. 16×16 room with storage above. (will install stairs on the side as the next project) As you can see, we have already moved a bunch of stuff up top. ............... Also, had time to build some Extreme Birdhouse Christmas gifts. The “rustic” one is red oak, and the other i...

Birds of a Feather Contest

08-08-2011 07:13 PM by Transition | 2 comments »

Thanks so much for voting me into second place! I am humbled by the beautiful artistry that went into all of the birdhouses. They are an inspiration and have certainly expanded my creative boundaries through viewing each and reading the accompanying anecdotes. I am proud to belong to such a collection of skill and imagination. The greatest reward here comes in the sharing of our gifts, and I believe a hearty “thank you” is due all of those entered the contest, and for that ma...

Those of you who’ve been on LJ’s for a while may recall my first effort at a birdhouse which began hereSomewhere in there, I mentioned that there was another one to re-build, but I had to wait until it was vacated… Well, the thing finally fell to the ground and the sparrows were forced to re-locate…So today I had a rare free day, and decided to re-work this… Just to begin with, I didn’t like the “eaves” arrangement… I think the guy who ori...
