I came across a photo of a bird house (see link) that looked pretty cool so I decided to make my own version. This is the result. I used some left over hardwood flooring (Maple). I ripped the pre-finished flooring into strips and cut tenons on either end. The tenons on one piece are on the face of the maple strips and on the next piece the tenons are on the back of the so when stacked in the groove they’re staggered in and out. The exterior is pine stained dark and the screws are stainless steel.

Hello Woodify

This is a nice birdhouse

What is the diameter of the hole?

For what type of birds ?

Thanks for sharing

Birds may be as ancient as it gets but I think they’ll like this very modern house. Hope you made a real rough interior on the face board to help the little ones climb out. I staple on a little bit of wire mesh. Chickadees rock!
