  • 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.

                            Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                            Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                            HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
