Last month our president’s challenge for our turning club was a ornamental birdhouse. We do birdhouses as a charity give away to nursing home residents during the holidays. For the contest I tried to do something different than our usual birdhouses that we do and I came up with this 2 story version made of spalted maple and walnut. Except for the birds everything was turned on the lathe (12 Pieces in total and assembled). Thanks for looking.

Wonderful design idea Mike. I hope you did well in the contest with it. I’ve turned a lot of birdhouses, but this is the most original one I’ve seen.
