The birds need a store too ,they come to our fountain all day and I thought this would make their day .
This little birdhouse is for one of my buddy’s to hang in his garden .
Made from pine and painted brown and tried to make the sign look like a neon sign so the birds can see it after dark . The house is glued together with waterproof glue and clamped and no metal fasteners where used .

Fun design for a birdhouse! This will make lots of smiles and a happy bud. What kind of waterproof glue did you use that gave you the confidence to forego fasteners?

I have used ELMERS PRO BOND MAX on several outdoor projects and haven’t had a problem .
This one was built in 20012 and seen hot and very cold rain and snow and hail and no problem .

Finding more uses for that jig I see, Lori made me take down all the feeders, way too much waste and Mess.
Maybe I will put them up on the other side of the fence? What’s on tap at the Store?

Thanks Andre
This was made on a new jig which makes it much faster to cut this new pattern and I also got a cutter made .
Yes those feeders are a bit messy and we only have them out in the winter .
I will have to see about the brand of beer but Becks is my favorite as long as it come from Bremen Germany .

My birds seem to like Brandy? speaking of cutters, ran some P.T. through my General Helical planner and looks like almost time to replace some cutters, what cutter heads did you say to get and where can i get them?

It’s a great idea and nice work, Kiefer. The bird’s always need a helping hand.
