  1. Robins Nesting Platforms

    Inspired by ejpeek's Nesting Box, I made two platforms to attrack one or two families in my backyard. I used shorts from pine boards and I won't apply any finish so they'll end up to a nice silvery grey with time. They look similar to his even if I made few modifications to match my lumber. His...

  14. Bluebird bird house

    Made from reclaimed pallet wood. There's oak, fir, and poplar in there for sure. Maybe something else, too. Base is 5" square on the inside, and the hole is 6" off the base, and 1.5" in diameter, which are the numbers for the western bluebird. The roof overhangs enough to hopefully keep ravens...
  15. Log cabin bird houses

    With this lock down, looks like everyone has the same idea. Outdoor projects. These are some bird houses I finished a bit ago. Nice and simple, just cut 3/4 by 3/4 pieces, notch them and round over. To assemble I glue then run a dowel down the notches and outside of the hole for a good long...
