My daughter asked to build a birdhouse with me. This is a fairly simple design based loosely on a design found in Woodcraft magazine from last year. Cedar with a coat of walnut oil. I got the cedar planks at the big red and blue store and then resawed them on my bandsaw. After running the 1/2” boards through my planer they were mainly cut with the bandsaw. My daughter helped in every part of the operation (as much as a 4-yr old can). The finish was done completely by her. The house is sized for a bluebird.
Once the oil dries we’ll hang the thing from the maple in the backyard this weekend.
