1st Post.

I was asked by a friend to build him a big birdhouse, so this is what I can up with. It’s 16” by 16” and has 6 compartments.
I cut my strips of pine 3/4 by 3/4, and like John’s houses from Extreme Birdhouse, the entire thing comes apart.

Oh, it is wonderful. Those lucky birds. I really like the log cabin appearance. And it holds 6 families- very efficient. :)

Very nice. Are the 3/4s glued together? How do you assemble the whole thing from a pile of separate 3/4s?

I cut all my pine 3/4 by 3/4, then cut the corners off of two sides, I use glue and brad nails. Once the shell is made I assemble it to a platform with cleats. (So you can take it appart to clean at the begining of the season)
