I made this birdhouse for the contest. I was looking for a Texas themed idea for a project when I saw the contest and thought that i would try it. I chose the Alamo because I’m a Texan through & through.
This birdhouse took a bit longer than I expected. I have only made one other birdhouse and swore that I would never do it again, but here I am. I made it out of scrap wood that I got out of a dumpster (as usual).
In my original design, I filled all the window holes with Dark Walnut but upon further study of the original Alamo the arched windows were just coves. So, Back to the drawing board.
I tried to add as much detail as I could to make it look similar without adding to much and making it look tacky.
This is the photo that i based my work off of.
“The Shrine of Texas Liberty”
I would really appreciate feedback.
