Hey, John, I’ve previously seen your work posted on the Ubeaut forums where I post as DPB. Love your work.

Hi John.. seems like we are “almost” neighbours (well, from a worldwide view, we ARE neighbours).
I’m about an hour from Listowel. I think that is close to where you are??

Love your birdhouses—that’s what Rick wants to find some time to build. He wants birdhouses all over our property. I have yet to see one, but that’s his plan.

well, we might just have to plan a trip up that way some time. My daughter lived in Listowel for about 6 months, when she was teaching in Walkerton. Her husband worked in London and for the first six months of the year (following their wedding, I might add) he lived in London and she lived in Walkerton. In December they both moved to Listowel so they could actually live together full-time and then they both commuted.
What does that have to do with Cranbrook? Asolutely nothing haha.. you just triggered a memory :)
(she now lives at home – 45 min from her new job and he now lives in Windsor, 10 min. from his job. Some day, soon I hope, they will both get jobs in the same town.) There. done. No more stories… nope..

So…anyway, maybe we’ll pop by one day in the summer.

Welcome John. I had to retire due to medical problems too. I tell all my friends that being retired isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. It’s a whole letter better! After all, I do get to do my style of woodworking whenever I want and can.
I’ve seen your work. It’s awesum!

Thank you Oscorner
I just put this shop together last summer.
The garage was about a mile away so we moved it here with a hay wagon then i put a floor in and added a 6 ft greenhouse on the end.
It also helps to heat the shop a little.
In the summer i do most of my work outside due to the size of my birdhouses.

Thanks again

Hi Dan and thank you .
I have built one church so far , I love the style of old churches.
The birdhouse i just made for the summer contest is similar to a small castle .
I would like to build an actual castle birdhouse but to keep it to scale for birds it would be huge.

John the Cape Cod I’m working on is almost complete
For others this is a massive structure and is probably his smallest plan
