Here are two bird houses, one for chickadees and one for bluebirds. I used a hand saw and hatchet to rough out the boards, then hand planes to get them to thickness, 3/8 for everything except the front and back which are about 5/8. One is 4 5/8 square and the other an inch bigger. The boards are glued and nailed together, then finished with spar varnish. On the back there is a 2.5 inch hole for clean out purposes, and it is covered with a tin plate.
