I save a lot of my scrap wood, cutoffs and leftovers until fall and then turn a bunch of birdhouses for gifts and charity sales. These are a sample of the different styles that I turned yesterday. I purchase the little birds at Hobby Lobby and use red beads to decorate the birdhouse tops. I drill a small hole in the top, insert a round toothpick and glue a bead on – when it is dry I turn it down to the contour of the top. The hook is a cutoff double barbed fish hook. A great way to utilize all the small scrap wood pieces. These were all turned from pieces as small as 2×2x4. Finials were all turned from pen blank cutoffs.
