This is a client requested birdhouse that I have just finished. Just as it shows, its got 6 birdhouses built as one. I made it out of cedar and finished it with Tompsons weatherproofing. And I didn’t get cheesy with the dowels either. I just spun them in my drill press. I decide to make a ‘balcony/garden’ just to add to it with a trellis and flowers. So anyways, nothing much to really say about it, hope you (and my client) liked it.

Nice job on that bird house. I just happens that I’m building a couple right now.
I’m not going to finish them, though. I used cedar and I’ll let it turn gray.
That is nice how you did the roofs. Your customer will love it.

Thanks for sharing. It is quite timely!!

Nice job on the condo. The trellis and the roof really makes it outstanding.
