This is a bird house made to look like a wine barrel and it is actually made from cut up wine barrels.

Even though I have no interest, no love or want to do bird houses; my mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother only ask for birdhouses for things like birthdays and mothers’ day. I think that’s about all I have made lately.

This one, being made from a wine barrel is of course made of oak, and has been riveted, mostly for fun but also because it has made it really strong. This ended up being a “Fun” project, so I may have to start disliking birdhouses less, but we’ll see!

Well done and nice looking. Lets hope there is still some wine aroma inside for the birds pleasure.
