Had a good week in the shed and managed a few turned items the first is 10 bird houses made from the many offcuts I can’t bear to throw out, many of you know the little pile in the corner. These are 3 3/4” to 5” tall.

Next is a clock, using one of the mechanism which I found a few lurking in my projects box, never seems to empty, this is made with English Walnut. Measures 7 1/2” X 1 1/2”

Then another piece of Walnut which i rough turned last year from some logs that seemed to have jumped into the car as I was passing. Measures 11” diameter

Finally this bowl is made from an unknown piece of wood that did not want to be left on it’s own when the walnut hitched a ride. Measures 8 1/2” X 2 1/4”

Is there more detail available on the bird houses?
Individual pictures of a couple perhaps.
Those seem very small, Are they ornaments or are there birds in your area that could use them?
If so what are the birds called?
Lovely work.
Thanks,

They are for decoration only much too small to be used as nest boxes but you could enlarge them. I have included the sizes in the description above

This is a very nice collection of projects turned on the lathe considering that you worked on them for only a week. Nice work!
