The Workshop: "I have a hammer"

Thirty birdhouses are now sanded and ready for assembly. I have a hammer handy and just have to warm up the shop this afternoon and turn on the air compressor.

First up: Heykel's duplex. Second up: John Luke's screech owl house.

And about that owl house. It's my first and made from the best of outdoor lumbers, i.e., western cedar.

["I modified the roof, now angled at 22.5 degrees"]

["Sides have ship lap joint, reinforced on inside."]

I like it! And I'm confident I'll be making a few of these every year for quite some time.

Photos of finished product soon to follow.
