This morning my daughter asked me for a birdhouse, well this is what I came up with. Nothing fancy here, all butt joints (glued and tacked) and all the angles are 90s and 45s. A 2” diameter hole and a dowel its done. The most enjoyable part of the day was watching my 3 1/2 year old paint it. That was a blast. Anyway , she is very happy with it. The wood I used was honduran mahagony (scrap, of course) I figured it would hold up to the elements better than a cheaper alternative. So thats it, a simple sturdy birdhouse for my little angel.

There is no better feeling than making little one happy. Nice birdhouse and she did a great job with the paint. Thanks for sharing.
