    Starter birdhouse

    Based on Bernie's tutorial (a tutorial of legend, by the way) this prototype was born. It is not finished or sanded or anything for that matter; just turned. "Sneeking-up-on" is new verbage for "sharpen your tools and go slow!!!" Now that the basic idea is in hand, Christmas turning is upon us all!! (sorry Stu )
    My nephew is waiting for his "orniment".
    Many thanks' Bernie, this is a long term gig for many Christmas's to come

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Your welcome Jim. Glad it helped. That is a great looking birdhouse. You will be doing those for many years. Almost brings tears to my eyes when I remember what my grandson said last year. He said, "grandpa can you make me one every Christmas forever?" Nothing better. Thanks for the memory Jim.
