Some of the miniature birdhouse ornaments I’ve made recently. Wood used for the houses are apple, Manitoba maple, birch, mayday and maple. Roofs are made of walnut, jatoba and maple.

These are very nice birdhouses. Very clean work and good variety of wood choices.

Nice turnings Bill. They make a great display. These have been on my list for awhile now. I should get to it. Where did you get the birdies?

Dave,
I ordered the birds from a place called Floraltrims in Ohio. Website is: http://www.floraltrims.com . Price is good and they’re a good size for these small houses.

What is the overall length of the birdhouses? What finish do you use. BTW, they are very nice.

Very nice work. I like the display stand. Are you using the 5/8” birds?

Knothead62, the houses are about 6” from top of roof to bottom of house. I used several applications of Deft Danish Oil and then, after curing, buffed them with the Beall buffing system.

Terry, the birds are about 1 1/4” from beak to tail.
