  • my bird houses

    here are my little bird houses that I'm going to give the girls at work...



    on the first one I made I used little fake presents that I got at Micheal's, they made the project look cheap so I ended up making the little presents out of wood...



    the houses are black walnut, the red birds are padauk, the yellow birds are yellow heart, the presents are purple heart and padauk, the poles and base are poplar, the bases is painted snow white with glitter...

    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

        Those are great Trout. I think I cut several dozen of them...the wife attached them to gifts for the kids (band saw boxes) and gift baskets for our friends and neighbors (the wife loves to bake)

          Trout - another great job. I like your home made gifts much better. For the gifts, did you paint the ribbon around the gift ?
          Oh by the way, I'm now working on a spring version of this little bird house. I'm thinking that I need one for all four seasons

                    Those are fabulous! I just love the little boxes and ribbons. What a great way to use up some very thin stock. I like your idea so much that I'm going to steal it!

                          My birdhouses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                          TO TROUT and FRIENDS:

                          The least you could do is give credit to the person you stole this idea from!!!! I can't believe you claim this to be your own, shame on you!!!!

                                by Linda In Phoenix
                                I use acrylic paint mixed with water to stain when I want vibrant colors. There was an article in one of the issues awhile back where a product called "Unicorn Spit" was suggested for the colors---and many people swear by it....
