A co work approached me a few weeks ago and we got to talking about butterfly’s and I mentioned I found a great link to some plans for a butterfly house. Now this is just goofy enough to make it interesting. Heck I never thought a butterfly needed a house bit what the heck. He said ok build that for me..I quoted a terribly low price
and I was off to the races. Now I can’t simply make a plywood box. I couldn’t resist the temptation and framed it out in oak. I also went to Lowe’s and found a 3/4in pipe cap and recessed into the bottom so it could be mounted to a pipe.
It was a fun goofy project that took like 2 hrs and was made up of scraps. I’d be willing to bet these things would sell well at a yard sale or flea market.
