More birdie ornaments.
Each is 2" high. Bodies are cherry, and maple. Tops and perches are Walnut. The perches were turned to 3/16" x 1". Talk about nerve-racking!
Thanks for peeking!
Love them, they look great!

Great job Neal. They are nerve racking but a lot of fun. Well done.

Kewl! Acorn Birdhouses.... A great little project. Thanks for the post.
Dale, I 'hollow' the blanks with a 7/8" forstner bit and expansion grip the rim with #1 step jaws. They're a perfect fit.
Bill, don't thank me. I believe I stole... uh, got the idea from Bernie.
Regardless (or despite, or because of) the provenance, I really like the ornaments, Neal.

Great looking ornaments Neal! I like the color combinations! Like you, I also managed to make a few of the 'Bernie Style' ornaments. They are a lot of fun! Nice work!
