I just had to post this project for the contest after reading that the sky was the limit. This bird house took hundreds of years to create. It has housed thousands, maybe even millions of birds. It is now destined to become a different style of bird house as well as a table, a giant mask, a childrens play zone and probably many many more different projects.

I know some will not consider this fine woodworking but I can find a few who will beg to differ. There are many more projects to be completed from this same project, but this one is done. The face was carved in exchange for the wood as well as a few other details in the deal. If anyone would like a piece of this history please let me know.

I love stories as much as the next guy but if you have an extra burl cap or two off of that thing i can give them a great home. That must have been one fun tree to take down.

Great save. Nothing like starting from the tree itself and working it all the way to the finished projects or seeing the wood move on down the line to the craftsman.

How do you clean it out and how many hours did it take you to build this bird palace ;-)
