I get a lot of off cuts, crate wood and left over wood from a few companies in the town I work in. Some real nice, some not so nice.
My skill level is no where near what some of you guys knock out, but I enjoy the heck out of it.
I’m trying to accumulate equipment as my budget will allow and I read a lot of what you all post to give me some tips.
Thanks for looking.

I like this tables design. Nice work. 1,000,000 bird houses? Only 999,999 to go.

That is some wild grain in the legs. Very unique. Nice looking table and birdhouse.

Make one a day and you will be done in 3,000 years. Not too bad.

A great job of recycling wood, & great craftsmanship.

A lot of my woodworking has been done with crate lumber.

When my sons were in the Cub scouts, I designed a Wren house that created 32 houses form one sheet of plywood.

I had some of the other fathers come & help one day,

& we made 64 birdhouses for about $10 of material, which was the price of plywood at the time.

We sold them for $2.50 each. A pretty profitable sale

Don’t ask me about the cutting pattern, because I don’t remember. Its been a long time ago, about 50 years. LOL

My random input on birdhouses. I did an experiment last year with an oak ply vs. an MDF wren house. Actually the MDF was my template, but I used it anyways. I used the same measurements and 3/4” sheet goods and finished with spray-on Thompson’s water seal. The MDF lasted about 3 weeks and the oak plywood lasted all season, but wintered poorly. The ply layers started to pull apart and peel like a banana. It did, however hatch out 2 clutches of house wren eggs, so I did the same house with solid pine this year in the same spot and have wrens setting up residence this week.

My kids love watching the birds come and go with sticks and grass. It makes for a fun quick side project.
