  • Not so mini birdhouse

    My husband wanted to see if I could cut out a birdhouse with a band saw so I gave it a try. It was a little challenging due but I still managed to do it. I put one of my standard size birdhouse ornaments next to it to give it some scale.

      Thanks! I believe it was 1/8 inch. It was a little tricky as you know because you can't take tight turns on those thins.

          Good job, I keep trying to make them smaller, never tried to enlarge the pattern, thanks for the idea.

            Good Job Susan. I kinda like to enlarge the patterns sometimes too. You did very well.

              Another great job on this birdhouse. Almost looks like a real bird could live in it. Great job on the band saw. Fay
              Have a great day, Fay.

                  Very nice cutting with the band saw. Now do a larger bird for the 'not so mini birdhouse'.

                      A Carter "Stabilizer" will give support to the blade and allow some very tight turns with and 1/8th inch blade if you want to continue cutting birdhouses on a bandsaw.

                        Thanks for the kind comments. I have a few more projects in the works...but now I am sitting by the fire instead of out in the shop. :-)

                          A fire sounds nice and cozy to me on a chilly night like tonight. I was watching the news and fell asleep. Sis stopped by today and had a half gallon of milk. We visited for awhile but her memory was not good today. She had a Dr apt and I had one this a.m. so I hope she is fine and I'm fine but they want to do some tests and the like and I'm supposed to have an ultra sound done as I had a valve replacement about 3 years ago. So happy I found a new hobby in wood working and turning and things of the like. Really gives me pleasure.. Guess I will go lie down for awhile and try to get some better sleep... Enjoy your nice warm fire.. Fay
                          Have a great day, Fay.

                            Sorry to hear that Scott. Bruce had it but I never did. And I try to isolate from Bruce whenever I can. ūü§™ We were even around our son and grandson right before they were diagnosed and nothing for us. I guess I overdid the shopping Carole.

                            My saw is in a severe state of depression due to alleged abandonment. We have been clearing Becky's office since her retirement. She one of the last two original occupants of that new building in 2001, so it has been a lot of trips to the recycling bin with student thesis files, convention papers and...

                            New here and looking for some help and guidance on scroll work and saws.
                            I have a Hegner M25S and have recently made some upgrades and would like to improve the blade clamping. So looking for ideas and help.
                            Thanks

                            Whatever therapy works for you - is a good therapy. Glad your touch/retail therapy was beneficial for you Betty.

                            Scott, I am so sorry to ear that you and your wife have both had to fight through Covid. I hope this means that you are both on your way to healing, if a bit slowly....
