  • 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.

                      It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                      Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.

                      Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

                      As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...
