Thanks for the feedback. @Woodshaver- I finish my birdhouses with HelmsmanĀ® Spar Urethane. They usually get 5-6+ rubbed on coats. Rubbing takes me longer than a brush to build up a good weather protection. I just hate brush marks and drips. Too lazy/much trouble to get the sprayer out for one thing.

That’s quite an unusual bird house. Nice design and congratulations.

Pat – I sketched it out then cut it with my cnc machine. A round hole just did not look right.
