Wanting to use up wood stored in the garage, I decided to build a birdhouse. However, the size just grew and grew because I had 2×2 redwood (recycled off a deck rail) and leftover siding.
No one could guess what this was going to be. A metal box inside a wooden box.
Materials used include parts off an antique rocking chair and vanity mirror frame, wooden knobs for a drawer, vintage door knob, and apple branches.
The overall size, about 2′ x 3′ made it heavy so I decided not to build the roof on it until it was attached. I bought a 6×6 post to install it on.
August 19, 2018 the birdhouse was installed by our friend and handyman, John.
Ready for the birds!
