Custom Fire Hall Birdhouse (Pt. 3).

Wanted - Firefighters!

I started with one lovely, dry pine board, cedar strips for trim and one-half of a red, white and blue rubber ball. The rest I put down to being a good juggler.

I juggled my time between cutting the pine into right-sized rectangles and a one-off roof, and the cedar strips into lots of tiny, fussy pieces for windows, roof trim, a porch and more. I juggled other hours between assembly and painting three coats and getting the lettering just right. 

And the rubber ball?

Oh, it's in there somewhere.
