  10. Apple Bird Feeder

    These are 6 piece bird feeders that took about 30 minutes to make. Got the idea out of a scroll saw magazine. There is a peanut butter recipe that you can use also to feed the squirrels with. I think the apple is easier and less expensive though.

    Being an English man in Finland the winter has come as a bit of a challenge to me. Where my tools are the temperatures as cold as -20 which means all the wood glues, oils, painds and varnishes will be moved in doors next winter as a lot of them froze quite solid. I could not do fine accurate...
  14. the circus is coming

    a potential contender for the Gorilla Glue contest. This fits into the "outdoor entertainment" aspect of the contest, however since the glue is only used to bond wood to wood, and not wood to another material, I'm taking my chances with a mixed media birdhouse in the contest…. with so few...

    My wife wanted a potting bench and I had enough 2×4's and pallets from the dump to finally build one.
