    Birdhouse Ornament

    I tried a cherry top on this but didn't like it. This one is walnut and I think next time I am going to try box elder. It was fun to make!

    Looks cool, Pete. What's the wood on the lower part? Is it box elder?

    Hi Vaughn,

    It is cherry burl. I have run into a bunch of it so I will try to use it wisely.
