I saw there was going to be a birdhouse contest on LJ, so I decided to make one, thinking it was going to be real easy. I thought of all different ideas and finally decided to make stuff up as I go. I first had the idea of making mini Adirondack chairs and decided popsicle sticks were the easiest wood to make them out of. When I finished them I made a little table and picnic table, then I made a deck and just decided to make the whole house out of popsicle sticks. Then a few weeks and 800 popsicle sticks later this is what I came up with. The hardest and most time consuming part was the roof, I use about 600 popsicle stick ends for the roof.
Overall Size: 18.5”x13”x8” (LxWxH)
Here are some more pictures of the bird house during construction:
Thanks for looking!
P.S. If I finished this earlier and used Gorilla super glue instead of Loctite, I could of killed two birds with one stone and entered this in the Gorilla Glue Contest that was going on while back because I didn’t use any nails or screws constructing this.
