Additional birdhouses that are made from shipping pallets and various objects I found. I’m not real sure what the metal object is in the first picture. Any ideas? Turning the wooden door knob opens the birdhouse for cleaning in the third picture. Glad my tetanus shot is current.

Terrific use of found objects. I especially like the old trowel. I like all of the others you have posted too.

a1Jim said it all. These are for the birds…

John, Good catch. I missed the trowel the first time through.

Great use of found items! Love the way you incorperate the rustic element into your designs.

Keep it up.

I believe the metal piece in the first picture is the end of a single or double tree. The bar that goes behind the horse on a wagon or buggy rig. The tugs (pull straps) hook to short adjustment chains that attach to the two small rings on the bottom. Could be something else, that’s my best guess. Lots of different versions out there. Keep up the good work, looks like you’ve been doing lots of it.

BTKS – I bet you are correct based on where I found that part.
