Yet another recycled pallet wood birdhouse. The roof was cut from heavy rusted straps found beside the railroad tracks on my way to work. The straps had been wrapped around cross ties they had replaced. I drilled holes through the back corners of the birdhouse and plugged with dowels. Added a ring I cut to the front then finished it off with a wiped on poly finish for protection. Copper side pins I made pull out to allow the front to open for easy cleaning.

Really nice. That roof will look even better when it gets an even rust covering on it. This has to be a pretty unique birdhouse. Congratulations on the original design.
