Ok I learned alot of what I know about woodworking from my father. Well he is getting up there in age and just recently spent a few months visiting with me and my family here in California. I just thought that I would share a project that we just completed while he was here. He did about 95% of the work on this project and then gave it to my granddaughter his great granddaughter so that she could enjoy watching the birds. This bird house was completly made out of 2×4’s, fence pickets and some plywood.

If you have any questions, just ask.

Hope you enjoy

Fancy, the birds are “moving on up….” Maybe you are not old enough to remember that show…
