My attempt at carving some birdhouses and making some daylilly stain. The green one is a water based stain. I have not stained any of them with the Lilly stain yet.

These birdhouses are great, the carving makes then really special! I’ve never heard of making a stain from lilies before, looks like quite a strong stain. Have you used some kind of bleach on the houses?

Very nice birdhouses..You did a fantastic job…I am not familiar with lily stain. .
I do a lot of sculpting and carving and made a bunch of carved birdhouses a couple of years ago. It was fun but I ended up focusing carving boxes.
