This is my Gorilla Challenge entry. It is a birdhouse turned from box elder. The top and bottom were turned separately and glued together with Gorilla super glue. The top has a brass 7mm tube super glued into it to minimize wear from the copper hanger. It is finished with spar urethane.

I thought you were going to say you turned the tree and used gorilla glue on the leaves!! :>)

Nice bird house- hope you get some “renters”in the spring

Very nice Joe. The grain and colors really look nice with the shape of the turning. You are going to make some wren a very happy renter!

Reminds me of the hats I see the locals wearing out in the rice fields. Love the patina and the colors, good luck in the Monkey Mastic contest.

gorgeous
the grain in the bottom looks like a landscape (to me) and then the top makes it look like mountains rising above the land. Stunning!
