Egg Birdhouse
I made this birdhouse with pine scraps,its nailed together with a small ammount of glue.The hardest part of the project was getting the angles cut for the box on the back of the egg,I had to use some filler for gaps!I got a kick out of the idea of a bird hatching out of a big cracked egg ,leaking the yoke.I wanted it to look cartoon like.I used rustins toy safe paint to finish it.The project took about 3hours to make,not including primer and paint drying time.

Ashe, this idea is not all its cracked up to be. I am shell shocked. Looks like the yoke is on us.

Nice job on a fun project. Keep boxing and keep posting.
