Thread: Bird Houses

    Bird Houses

    I had seen these type of Bird Houses made on another Forum. Only they made them with a much longer stem. I liked the idea of a bird house that did not have to be hung up to be displayed. So I made up a couple like these and took them to my last show. People liked them enough that I made more of them. All wanted the hook on the top so that they would have the option to hang or stand. Lots of differant types of wood used. Tallest about 4 inchs high.

    Hey - I like those a lot Dennis!

    Cool designs, great finishes.

    (But, where did you find the teeny tiny birds? How much do they eat? And how many did you have to cull out before finding five who would hold an extended pose at the same time? )

    Great looking houses Dennis. I made a few with stands and they went over fairly well. I just sent 40 birdhouses to the Gallery getting ready for Christmas. I need to make about 20 ornaments now inbetween grandma going to see the grandkids.

    Kerry I get my birds from Michaels.

    I like the pedestal idea, Dennis. Great assortment of birdhouses. They should sell well.
