Heres a little birdhouse I made for my grandmother. She actually helped me make some of it!! It consists of a Cedar everything. Most of the wider pieces were edge joined. I used Tight bond III to make this birdhouse indestructible to the weather, we painted it with I believe hunter green. Most of the larger pieces were nailed together and the smaller pieces were glued together. This is a fun little project for a weekend but let me tell you, cutting out all the little pieces for the Tudor Style is a pain, there is a ton of them. The bottom also separates from the top to clean it out. You can also put a galvanized pipe flange on the bottom and attach a pipe to that to stick it into the ground. This is what we did later. My grandma put it up in her garden and said there was a bird moving in the first day she put it there. The plan was in WOOD Magazine and is relatively easy to make.
