These were fun to make, as you can see I have to make two of everything. The caboose on the second shelf I bought down in Massachusetts, my wife said i can do better than that. The caboose on the top shelf is my creation which is my best seller. I sold most of these houses last May for mother’s day gifts from the youngster around the neighborhood. I am looking forward this week to get back in the shop, I have two folding Adirondak chairs I am finishing up, the plan is Wood magazine creation. I use mostly cedar for my projects unless I paint, then I use pine. I like our local Home depot because I can find some culled lumber cheap to practice honing my skills with my tools. I will be posting my latest projects soon and include pictures of my small but functional workshop.

John. Those are some great looking bird houses. Or are some butterfly houses also.

The one on the far right is a butterfly house, which I was commisioned to make but the person never showed up to pick it up. the two in the front are feeders as well as the log cabin on the bottom step. The chimney is real stone by the way, and the seed is fed onto the porch from a shute fashioned inside. The feeders on the ground work the same way.
