So tonight I worked on some birdhouses and my Bat houses. I was making them out of old carved panels that where destined for the burn pile. As you can see...they are rather colorful. ( check out the Koi!) But it won't matter after they get painted black and put 20 ft up in the trees. The good thing is that I made them tonight. I had enough bracket's for four and that should be enough. I still have a couple of panels and a bunch of scrap wood left. My next project will be an owl house, a woodpecker house and a wood duck house. We have a barred owl that hangs out around here but I think he has a nest down the street. We also have a Piliated woodpecker and I would love to get him to investigate a house in our woods. If you are wondering why I don't buy good wood and make a pretty one....well that is not the point! I have small scraps of lumber I want to use instead of burn. Maybe the bats will find it exciting as well. Oh ! and with keeping the barbershop tradition. Here is a group I think Has a great sound. I don't know if they are champs...yet!
