Sculpted Bird House

My wife wanted some birdhouses for the yard which means “you need to build some birdhouses”...Well, being the way I am, a plain birdhouse would not suffice…so I thought I would try some of my sculpting on one. This is the result…minus any undecided finish sealer.

The edges of the hole makes the material look like ply, but I don’t see the layers in the sculpted sections… is this solid stock on ply? Maybe just an optical illusion.

Wow Greg, transitioning your sculpting over to a birdhouse!

How about making some bat houses with your sculpting techniques? Seems like the feel would really fit something like that.

The birds will be so busy preening and showing off outside, I wonder if they will ever go inside!

Nice Work.

bobasurus, I did not use any ply. It is just an optical delusion. I used some scraps of red cedar that have gathering dust around the shop for quite some time. Talk about making the shop smell good while grinding that aromatic cedar…
DocSavage45, I just use an angle grinder to do the shaping…followed up with my random orbit sander to eliminate gringing marks. Alot of hand sanding also.

Awesome. You know after I get my grinder and practice to get 1/2 as good as you are at this sculpting thing, It will be time to build a house and sculpt all the walls and windows. I will save this birdhouse as a favorite so that is can be the miniature version of what I will build. Place this scuplted house somewhere in the foothills of the mountains and TADA!
Thanks for the inspiration :)
