My version of a bird house for the LJ contest. Like millions of others I am addicted to “Angry Birds” and I though what other type of bird house could do other than an angry bird. To build I printed a drawing up in poster form, Glued it to a piece of 1/4 hardboard, and cut it out with the scroll saw. I used this for a pattern to cut out Baltic birch plywood with a pattern cutting bit in the router. Then I stacked them and screwed them in layers. There are 11 3/4” layers in all. The front and back pieces are the full cut-out but, the middle pieces are round with a cut out in the center. Not having a spindle sander I just used body filler to get the outside smooth and flush. Painted it with latex paint.
