hello hairy!
i do have faceplates but not really small face plates that would work nicely for the birdhouses. the problem is more or less turning the underside of the bird house, along with the roof and decorative spindle on the bottom, which requires a woooden mandrel.

if there was a nice 3/4” metal mandrel i could buy, maybe that might work

i also saw that dick sing uses a stepped / tapered mandrel (not sure what to call it) on the tail stock. is that called a pen mandrel saver that he is using?
