This bird house started life as a chessboard. So many mistakes that I couldn’t save it. I said to myself well that’s for the birds…( I was alone and never waste good cuss words when no one is around to hear the way I can turn a fine phrase) I thought it would help to take the picture with the ducks in the photo…They are beautiful…Several years ago I bought those Mallards from Robert Kelly Woodcarving, Port Caborne, Ont. Canada. I’ve enjoyed them every day. They remind me of my younger days sitting in a duck blind..trying to outsmart a duck. It’s Curly Maple & Chakte-Viga and Alder… So what have you done with a Mistake….

Well I like your mistake and if I make a mistake I just do a retake!

Or if I cut it short I just make it smaller, :(

Obviously the chessboard originally wanted to be a birdhouse? You just helped it along! ;-)

Bearpie is right sometimes the wood wants want the wood wants. Its always good when you can repurpose good joinery so it doesn’t get wasted. Great Project Looks Sharp.
