Well, the community birdhouse project went great. Had 10 people show up and they all had a great time. It was a great experience.

Nice David, was it only you doing all that prep, or did you have help.

Great idea.

I did it all. Even made the boards out of rough saw lumber. The library got a saw mill to give me all the scrap wood from when they made lumber. It was tough though, I had to predrill all the holes so the nails would go in.

What a wonderful idea. This is the kind of thing woodworkers can do to stimulate the interest of young kids (the woodworkers who will someday replace us ) and apparently some woodworking mommies. You put in a lot of valuable effort to even pre-drilling for the nails, I hope it was properly appreciated.
The wood really looks interesting, what is it? You are lucky to have a nearby mill that wwill donate scrap for a good cause. How long did it take to get this all ready.

I’ve got some grandkids who will be receiving DIY birdhouse kits for Christmas. Thjanks for the idea.

It took me around 2 days to make 15 kits. I had to cut the wood into boards. Then cut the boards into the kits and then drilled all the holes. I made 4 different kits. Bluebird houses, swallow houses, robin house and bird feeders.

What a great idea! And could be used for so many charities, giving pleasure to people and benefits to nature. Thanks for this, it’s really a fantastic way of paying it forward.
