HelloGintaras,
I had a good look at your bird houses, mainly because the looked so attractive.
Well done on their presentation!

As you have not added any information regarding them I have to ask a few questions.
No 1. I assume you used a power carver to do the finish, is this correct?
No 2. There is a couple of dowels visible on the side what is it for?
No 3. the front appears to have a recess or offset from the sides, why and how did you do this?
No 4. What type of bird (species) are they for?

-- Regards Robert

Nice birdhouses – really nice carving.

Did you say your son made these for his contest, or did he help?

Hi Gintaras … I like your cool birdhouse design! I am presuming the side dowel holds the front panel in place, then can be removed, allowing that panel to hinge up for easy cleaning out access. Great idea!! How was the contest?
