    Mini Birdhouses

    Here are part of a dozen I made day before and yesterday. I was asked if I could provide some close up's of the brick and barn style. I also had a couple of small pieces of maple burl that was spalted which sure turned out pretty. Didn't do anything to them as they show off themselves. All are around 3 1/2" tall and 2 to 2 1/2" wide and all finished with lacquer. The coloring was done with Copic pens with the double end (brush and spade) and after I burned the ones to be colored. They do work nicely for small projects. Anyway enjoy. Only 50 more or so to go.
