    red bud birdhouse ornament

    Here's what I thought was a neat ornament that I turned from a piece of redbud. A guy I know had to take one down because of rot. I was able to save a couple of smaller pieces. The top is teak I think. The grain is really striking and my photo skills are lacking!

    John, that looks good to me. I havent tried a bird house yet. That is on my list though. I like the shape of this one. I will have to remember this thread so that I can refer to it later.
