I’ve had this big 6×6 chunk of wood about 4’ long just sitting in a corner of my shop. Years of dust have covered it so there was no telling what it is. Well, ran it through the planer and turns out to be Walnut (I think). So with no other project on the horizon I decide to use a piece of this.,
What came out was a Band Saw Bird House Box. You know the BSBHB. Since I never put anything into my boxes maybe it can have another use. So here it is. Still needs a little more finish but since I brought it in the house to show Kathy, might as well put it on LJ.
Already got a Wren’s nest in a pack of steel wool on a shelf (last picture). They come and go and we have 3 eggs waiting to hatch in a couple of weeks. This is right over my big belt sander and the noise doesn’t scare them. I’ve been working there and had them land on my shoulder while traveling back and forth with nest materials. We’ve had them nest in the greenhouse and in hanging baskets but this is a first.
-- I am going to go stand outside so if anyone asks about me, tell them I'M OUTSTANDING!
