    Mini Birdhouses

    Here are a couple of birdhouses that I made of redwood and maple. Redwood from Jim Burr. Thanks again. Finished with General Finishes Woodturners Finish. 3 1/2" long and 2" across.

    Really some nice ones. If I ever get back on my lathe, I want to make some bigger ones to hang outside.

    Nice.

    It probably appears this way in the photo but the finish looks very different on both.

    Thanks to all. I think it may have been the lighting which wasn't good where I took them. In the house they look pretty much the same.
