I learned this from a fellow LB buddy, it’s not as nice as his, but it was fun to build and I want to make more. I shaped it on the lathe to the desired shape, then I cut the top off. Then I cut a piece of the bottom off and did it like a band saw box kinda. Then I glued the bottom back on after cutting out the house part, some I see use a drill press to hollow out the log. After the bottom has dried I glued the top back on and drilled holes for the bird and perch. Then finish sand with 220 and wallah, one bird house ready for move in lol. Special thanks to my buddy for showing me this.

Great work. The log you used looks similar to mine. They are a lot of fun to build.

That looks great, great job buddy. I no longer use the drill press, finally broke down and got a hollowing chisel! MUCH FASTER and easier. I look forward to seeing more.

Great job! Will you share the dimensions please? Why not just part off the top and bottom, then hollow on the lathe, then glue top and bottom back on? That might not work depending on size I guess, but possible.
