  • 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.
