Birdhouse made of construction grade cedar.I was planning to make it entirely without any nails or screws, but gluing up proved difficult and I opted to use brad nails to ease in assembly

1: the top sits in a rebated dado to slide in and out, and is secured in place with a sliding stop underneath

2:rebated dado

3: cutting a rebate with the single blade method in 2 cuts meeting at 90 degrees,a different set up for each cut which is not very safe

4: rebate

I just need to make the same thing 100 times bigger, and I can start renting them out to people!
