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.
