A Quick and Easy Job
The two on the right are from select, rescued lumber
The phone rang last week and the following conversation began:
LP: My wife and I are moving in the spring. I am cleaning lumber out of the garage and thought of you.
GH: I'll be over in five.
From LP's stash I selected odd bits of plywood, pine slats of various widths and a pile of cedar shakes. (About the shakes I was thinking.... roofing material for birdhouses.)
I did not select a ton of odds and sods, but likely enough for 10 - 12 rustic looking birdhouses.
Here is the first one - total cost to me $1.00 for the metal perch, and a few cents for nails and screws - with a cedar shake roof:
Faces are from lovely rustic fir; the first roof is 1/4" plywood
Cedar shake roof atop the plywood
I buy bits and bobs for unique perches
Rescued lumber oft-times looks pretty rustic. Thumbs up, I say
One more will quickly follow.
