Rather than relegate the pallet on which my SawStop table saw arrived to the burn pile, I turned it into a couple of bird houses. Here’s one of them. (The roof and floor are actually made of cedar.) The wine bottle is there to demonstrate the size of the house (as well as to reward its builder, ha ha.)

Thanks, Jim and Josh. Yeah, it’s great when you can turn something destined for the scrap pile into something useful. Have a nice Easter.

This is the first time I’ve seen a rectangular entrance hole on a bird house, it seems more like a picture window for them. Hope they like it. Great colour too.

Beautiful birdhouse! Like the color and the shape of the window, something new. Great use of pallets.
