Happy Mother’s Day

Cedar birdhouse with textured copper roof. I got the copper from Michael’s Craft Store which was in a roll (36 guage) and then cut it to size and textured it by laying it on cardboard and pressing indentations with my fingers. This was from a plan at Thanks for looking.

Great job on the birdhouse. I also built this model. I designed a matching bird feeder to go along with it so I could give my dad a complete “set”. Thanks for posting!
