I recently bought a book…wild & wacky birdhouses and feeders, and decided to build my way through it.
I started with this wacky looking one, and then moved on to the feeder in the 4th pic.
I used cedar and MDO ply for the house, and just cedar for the feeder.
They were fun to make, except for the painting.
I used a scroll saw and table saw for the cutting.

Thanks for looking

Happy Easter
