This was a piece commissioned by Cox Communications here in Tucson for Earth Day 2019.
The Final Product
Unless I sell the bird house, I'll be mounting it in my back yard on a metal perch off the patio.
I wanted to build something useful while I was learning to use all my tools. The project let me use all the features of my new band saw (stART grant). However, I also used a jig saw, the versacut saw, and my drill, plus wood glue, nails, screws, and hinges. Thanks, Pam, for helping me learn to use all the tools (safely)!
The Final Touches
As usual, I used plenty of re-purposed materials to complete the project. My friend NJ gave me the brass letters; the roof 'tiles' were metal samples used by a sales rep.
