  • 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.

          Every year for Christmas my wife renews my subscription to the magazine. This year she managed to subscribe to it twice. She thinks she was able to cancel one of the subscriptions but since it hasn't arrived yet she wonders if she managed to cancel both orders. Is there a way for us to find out if the...

          I would be curious also. Back in March of 2014 the switch on my Delta quit working. Now last weekend it quit working again. Don't know if it's the switch or not. And of course I had a request from a friend of my wifes to cut something for a little girl. We've been talking about maybe getting a new scroll...
