I like birds. I enjoy watching them out my family room window. For the last few years I have taken a fancy to making birdhouses and feeders. I usually use leftover wood from projects or get cheap pine or poplar for them.
Painting is the hardest part for me. It never seems to suit me when I’m done. Still, I enjoy the process and love to see a whimsical birdhouse after I’m finished.
My wife and I have given lots of these away, and I am always afraid that whoever gets them will put them outside! What???!!! Yep, I shudder to think of my creations out there in the cold and rain! Of course I’m the guy that a friend jokes about for washing my tractor and keeping it in the garage.
I must get some therapy for my overprotectiveness… is that a word? Afterall these creations are our babies!
