    Birdhouses

    I turned a few birdhouse ornaments this weekend. Here are a couple of the better ones. They're both about 5.5" tall and 1.75" diameter. First is Ash, second is Koa. They're made in two pieces, hollowed out, and glued together. Just sprayed with deft lacquer.

    Man, you've got these down to an art, Curt. They both look great. I'd say the koa one is my favorite, even though the form of the ash one is perfect.

    Both look great, Curt, but I like the ash best.
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    They look great Curt! Are you going to put a perch on them or leave them as is?
