    Cedar is excellent for outdoors. Will last a long time.

    That is a beauty Larry. That will last for some time to come. He is going to love it. Larry are you going to put a perch on it for the birds to land on? What kind of finish did you use?

    Nice work, Larry.

    From what I've read, it's recommended to not put perches on bird houses. See the section titled "Entrance Hole" in this write-up:

    This also has some good birdhouse dimension guidelines for various bird species.
