  • Compound cut bird homes

    I finally got on the band wagon yesterday and cut a bunch of compound cut bird houses. They are fun to cut it's true. The prep time got to me. As I did not have anything already sized at 1 1/4" I had to either do glue ups or take the boards to the planner. I ended up making 15 of them and found the cutting was very fast. I made a hand held holder that worked good, but perhaps the clamps would work better. I skipped the step of taping after the first cut and did have to hold a few pieces that wanted to come apart. I think I would like to increase the size of the ornaments, but of course would have to use light weight wood so they are not to heavy. I think I will dip the finished product before adding a hanger.

            Glad things worked out.

            I just updated my older PC. The hard drive was 500 gb and eight years old. I cloned it to a one TB SSD (solid state drive). Put the cloned drive in and worked perfectly with all my old programs. The computer is now much faster. The new drive was about $100 and...

            Once upon a time ( in the 70's) i attempted bow hunting. I believe the bow had a 45 pound draw. I quickly learned that it was not for me. It takes lot of hard work and practice just to be fair at it. Good is a whole different level. I hope you do better than I did.

            So glad you are back up and running. You will be awed by the speed of your new drive, fresh drivers, and cleaned up files. Spring housecleaning!
