I want to make some birdhouses but I want to make medium size houses like with a 1 1/2 inch opening in the top and about 4 inches long and about 3 inches in diameter. I made a couple this past weekend and they turned out heavy because I could not get into the opening and take out more wood to make the walls thin. I have read about everyone making a tool but I dont really want to make one I would rather just buy one. Any suggestions on what I should look for? I would also like a tool for hollowing small vases and ornaments.
