I was looking at some seemingly useless old pallets and it occurred to me that they would make a good bird’s house. You can see the result. Its quite relaxing to just make something occasionally and not worry about the intricacies of fine woodwork. The pieces were cut on the bandsaw and just nailed together. I even manage to re-use most of the nails from the original pallet. Total cost was zero discounting a couple of hours of work.

I love it! and I think a family of birds will too. I totally agree about throwing something simple together without obsessing over the intricacies of fine woodworking. Then again, that describe most of my projects. :)

I made a similar birdhouse from some cedar shakes which I had no other use for. It’s still hanging in my neighbors tree and fully occupied every spring.

Great re-use…. Should give some lucky birds a nice home.
