    I'm a little embarrassed - birdhouse

    I'm a little embarrassed to show this, but I appreciate your opinions. I had a vision of this the other day so this morning I got up and made this prototype. Maybe I won't go beyond the prototype. Maybe with the right pine cone.. or maybe a bad idea. I don't know if this was an original thought, I don't think so, seems like I saw something like this sometime. Anyway I'd appreciate your honest opinions.

    Paul,

    Actually what you created is pretty unique. An all natural birdhouse, that kind of camouflages itself in a tree.

    A pretty good idea if you ask me!

    What's to be embarrassed about...that is as cool as all get out.

    Paul if you are embarrassed to show that one I will tell you this I won't post any of mine. That is just one cool looking birdhouse. I hope you don't mind if I borrow the idea. I never would have thought of that. Cool piece. Let's see some more.

    I personally like what i see Paul and can't see what the problem is. What didn't turn out right in your mind ? ( if you don't mind me asking).

    I don't see why you should be embarrased, it is a great looking birdhouse, and I like the detail of using the pine cone as a roof.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Cool-looking birdhouse, Paul. I especially like the roof...I don't think I've ever seen one done with a pine cone.
