  • Wacky Beaver Bird House

    I Have almost completed the wacky beaver bird house, Paul Meisel, Spring issue.

    Unfortunately like many US projects I am unable to obtain the plastic eyes needed
    # 3437 and the flush mount hanger #1262. I have tried ordering from Pauls website but it appears that shipping applys to only the US and Canada. I have also tried the web in the UK but eyes only seem to come in bulk orders, no luck either with the hanger. Does anyone hailing from the UK know of anywhere I can get these items. Maybe I will have to devise some sort of flush hanger and make the eyes from wood

    Harry can you post a pic? If it's what I'm thinking I personally prefer making the eyes.
    I may be able to help with the hanger if I could see what you need.

            Harry I think I would make a keyhole mount...

            Steve shows a vertical mount you can also do a horizontal mount...side to side across the top of your project. Your choice if you make and entry and an exit plunge.

              Harry, Mike had a good idea or maybe a back plate a little larger than the piece and that would give you room for mounting screws.
              I found a supplier in UK that can probably help with the eyes

                Thanks Mike looks like a neat tool, Could I not get the same effect marking out a keyhole and
                cutting out with the scroll saw.

                I will try that UK site Rob thanks for taking the trouble to look.

                  I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

                  These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
