  • Copper roof for my scrolled bird house.

    I tried using copper from a roll of roofing copper that I have. It's too thin and is all wrinkled (see attached photo).

    Now my wife likes it this way, but I don't think it's sellable, which by the way is my motivation to do anything with my hands.

    Any ideas on the thickness of copper needed for this type of project?

    Thanks,

      You may try opening a large fruit juice can down the side, then open it up like a book, placing it as a roof. You could then coat the can with the copper that you have.
      If you are making a series of birdhouses, you may also want to try something like this on a simple box. I know dimensions are critical when building bird houses but it will suit many of the smaller species.

        Cutting Styles
        by millwab
        In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

        Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

        The outside
        of the extension is almost finished apart...

        Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great.
