This is a Bird House Tri-Plex, in the shape of a plane. I used some old barn wood, it came out not too bad. Considering at the time I didn’t have a planer, which I just bought yesterday O YA. I used Minwax stain & Polyurethane in 1 in the color Pecan. It’s 3 ft long

Ya it’s a free plan from one of the wood magazines on-line, I forget which one. It’s a fairly easy plan, thanks for the comments
