Found the dimensioned, (sorta) sketch for this bird house while wandering the internet. Mine is made from 1/2” MDF with a 3/4” Poplar base. Ladder is made from cedar and poplar dowels. Painted with several coats of matte finish lacquer.

Thanks for looking

I don’t think mdf will hold up outdoors. Fun idea though. Love the cactus.

From the notes on the sketch it’s design is more decorative than functional. I’m counting on the 4 coats of color lacquer and 2 coats of clear matte lacquer to hold up.

You have Pueblo Birds in your neighborhood? I hear they are very rare. ;-)

That’s true. That’s why when I advertise it in my shop I’ll have to raise the price! Not many folks making pueblos for the Pueblo bird!! LOL!

It’s a nice birdhouse and looks like a fun and enjoyable project.
