Curved poplar front birdhouse with cherry roof and sides. The arched bottom is made from walnut. The left side opens for easy cleaning and is held shut by rare earth magnets.

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.
