  • Birds house pattern

    There was a bird house pattern in one of the magazine, simple pattern for blue bird house made of eastern cedar.
    Iwent through all my copy of the magazine since 2009 and cannot find it.
    Would really appreciate if some body could point me in the right direction.

    I have all issues indexed but could not find.

    There are plans for Blue Bird Houses at

    Our club is involved with the local conservation authority and they use the Peterson Nesting Box

    When I was researching this project there is a club up in your neck of the woods that made over 400 of this design a few years ago as a fund raiser.

      There are lots of plans of Blue bird house on-line. I volunteer once a month at the Eastern Bluebird Rescue group.

      We build 1,500 to 1,800 houses per session. We do that many in about 3 hours. The main factors on if a house will attract Blue Birds is the size of the box and the size of the hole. The picture below is similar to the design we use. A couple things that make ours different are:
      - We use 5/4 pine lumber. The wood comes from a processing plant that makes stair tread.
      - We put a piece of brown flashing around the entry hole. It prevent squirrels from chewing the hole and getting in.

          I print mine using folded card stock. I keep around a dozen in each car and set out 40 - 50 at each showing ( and have run out a coupe times). I know they work because people come back - email or call.

          Very nice. I think I know what is giving the bad eye. The front bumper needs to have a small bit shaved off on the right side. It looks as if there is a bump hanging down. I see it in the picture also. I think that it has to do with the lighting. I would take a straight edge and lay it on the...
