Yet another birdhouse made on a weekend in the shop. The front opening door has teak strips and the rest is made from poplar that was bought from a local lumber mill. I softened all the sides with a microplane/rasp/sander. The metal roof was cut from scrap and bent to follow the lines on the front stripes. Threw on some poly for protection from the weather.

I’d live in it if I were a bird. Very nice styling.

Yes, I also love the style of the rounded corners. Lucky birds.
