HOW TO BUILD A BIRD HOUSE woodworking
These are couple bird houses I made for Christian and Jayelee from a hollow junk of juniper firewood. RUSTIC and birds love them.
Notice my old antique chainsaw; It’s a Frontier and excellent little saw for this stuff, lots of power.

  1. This isnt going to work for birds as they will have water from rain gather inside of the house from the roof being split like you have it. It would be best to have one single plank of wood on the top. Also, you will want to look at the growth rings and have them face up on the house. As the wood drys, it will cup. Opening up the side where it connects to the top of the structure. Letting water gather inside as well. Its a great Idea but you may want it to last awhile and by doing it this way would extend the life of the structure.

  2. According to published specifications I have seen, those houses don't look tall enough to be accepted by most hole-nesting birds. They are fussy, and won't take just any hole. I think leaving that log whole an just making one birdhouse would have been a better bet.

  3. Good idea, but the performance is bad. This is not a safe birds house. Too flat. Besides, you should not use plastic.
