  • Bird house pictures

    OK, here is a picture of the birdhouses I have cut so far....still have to soak in oil and attach a string....the wife is looking for some cute very little birds with feathers to add to them. Sorry the picture is not good. They were cut from white pine and Koa

    Very very nice. Here is a tip. For the perches I use bamboo skewers. They fit a 1/8" hole perfectly.

      You took the thought right out of my mind Scott. I was looking at the skewers last night in the kitchen and thought they might work. Great minds think alike I guess

        Nicely done. You have some nice woods to choose from on the island. Thank you for taking the time to post some pics.

          Sweeeeeet cuts Larry, I think with this forum half of the world will be up to the knee caps with compound cut bird houses. I cut a few dozen and keep adding to the pile every now and then. Can't seem to get away from making them...
          Diana hit the nail on the head with these patterns.....good for her, and the new issue of Creative Woodworking & Crafts has more patterns. Yea!

            Very nice bird houses. I just love the look of Koa wood.

              While I was cutting a couple more bandsaw boxes today, I was cutting away the inside of the drawer (the part I would throw away, and I found myself cutting the chunks down to 1 1/4" X 1 1/4"........any scrap will work right?

                Your birdhouses look just great. The colours will really pop when the finish goes on. I seem some designs there that I don't have. Now we can't have that! Guess I'd better pay a visit to Diana's site right away!

                    Those are really cute! I can see why they are so popular!

                    If you can't fix it with sawdust and glue, it's not worth fixing.

                      Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...

                      Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                      I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

                      Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                      That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....
