  • 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...

        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!

                          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!!!!

                            most of us know the bird house pattern is by Daina Thompson....
                            my coworked shared his project with me and I took it to another level.

                              I like the wood boxes - much better than the first ones. Nice job all around!

                                I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                                John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                                Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                                I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                                This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                                I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                                Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                                How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
