I recently replaced my fence but I didn't want to waste the used redwood. I made a number of different "art" projects from it, one of which was this birdhouse. In this particular project I left the fence wood as it was when I removed it. The birdhouse was then adorrned with other obsolete or discarded items which I had salvaged. The theme of this project was to reclaim the kitchen and I used a variety of kitchen items including the sink strainer (but not the sink!). It is a whimsical piece designed to make one smile as well as evoke memories of earlier times (my grandmother had a grater just like that!). I hope you enjoy it and thanks for viewing.
