  1. Saloon Bird Feeder

    I made this saloon-style bird feeder from two 6-foot fence boards that were 5.5" wide. I read that pressure-treated boards might be harmful to our feathered friends, so I used untreated boards. It has three bar stools and wooden bottles on the bar. The top has a hinge so you can open it to...
  2. "My What Big Teeth You Have..."

    Hello Fellow Lumberjocks! This is a wolf birdhouse from a Windfield print. The 'house' portion is made from MDO plywood and the figured pieces are pine.

  3. Drumset Birdhouse

    I made this drumset birdhouse for a contest held at our Gwinnett Woodworkers Association meeting last Saturday.

    Hello Fellow Lumberjocks! Here are pictures of another of my birdhouse projects. This is a birdhouse in the form of a whitetail deer. I love building a birdhouse because it is such a blank canvas: It can take any shape the builder desires. As long as the house meets a few basic criteria (hole...

    Hello. This is my first post, but I have been a frequent reader here the last year or so. That's why I'm posting in Lumberjocks - I know I'll get some real help from the members here. I've been replacing my motley collection of woodworking equipment with better brands & models in an attempt to...
