  • More Miniature Birdhouse Ornaments

    Four Miniature Birdhouse Ornaments finished and ready to display. The birdhouses are Ash and the little birds are Purple Heart. I used Pegas #7 Skip blades on the birdhouses and #5 Skip blades on the little birds. The finish is dipping in Shellac further diluted with 50% denatured alcohol. Comments welcome.

                    I usually give them to kids who are looking for a gift for mom or dad and only have a few $. I tell them they are lucky. I was running a contest and the 10th person to show up got a free bird house or 2. Their eyes light up. When they come back with the parent inquiring about this I tell them he was correct. They usually buy something. If they don’t, thank them and usually see them later.

                      That’s so clever, Betty, and also a kind thing to do. When something you make gives joy to someone, that can often be payment enough.

                            I made some of these and would like to sell them if our Home Owners Assn. hosts a craft fair this fall. Do you mind telling me what you get for these. We are in Calif so hopefully won't be competition for you.

                                I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                                If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                                The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                                I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
