"Neat" Bird House

I was going through some old pictures and found this project. For one of my college classes we had to manufacture a product and then improve the manufacturing process.

I made this simple birdhouse and brought it in to get the project approved.

My professor said I needed to do something more complicated to fit the scope of the project. I asked him if he wanted the birdhouse since I didn’t really have a use for it now. He said his wife would not let him have it because he put up a bird house before and she made him take it down. It seems as though the bird house only served to attract birds to “do their business” on the patio.

I took the bird house back home with me but I still didn’t have a use for it.

I decided that I would modify it to make it useful to him. I added another dowel to the side and cut down a roll of toilet paper. I took it in the next day and presented it to him again. He accepted it as a gift but I’m not sure how he was going to train those birds…

Great story. I’m sure he and his wife had a good chuckle when he brought it home.
