First of all thank you for the warm welcoming on this web site! Very nice site! Tons of great stuff here! Now some introduction…I’m a complete amateur. I don’t have any woodworking education and nobody ever showed me how to work with wood. But I like learning new skills and I like challenges :). This summer I decided to make a Purple Martin bird house for one old man. He use to have two of those, so I decided to make him happy and build bird house for him.
I don’t have my own tools and I practically never worked with wood, but this man has tools, he use to work with wood long time ago, before he became a plumber. He had a big doubts that I can make Purple Martin’s bird house, was asking me if I have any woodworking education, but after his son told him to let me try, he gave his “OK”. His son only showed me in 5 minutes basics of using overarm saw. That’s it. The rest I’ve done by myself. It took me one month to build this bird house.
I used cedar to make it.
