We have a wren, but would like to have another. Made from barn wood, I’m thinking of finishing with spar varnish for protection

I like it. Nice job fitting the roof slats.

How did you cut the angles in the front and back to fit the slats? I’m interested.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

Thanks for the compliments guys,

Mark – I cut the angles using a band saw – I marked out and cut 3/8” deep notches x 1.5” long. Then I resawed and planed the roof pieces 3/8” thick x 2” wide so they would overlap.

Thank you much Ron. I pretty much need a band saw. I was hoping you had a cool technique with a table saw. Anyhow the band saw makes perfect sense.

It looks good. Like the cool and unique design. I’m sure the wrens will be moving in no time.

Have your say...
