Birdhouse Plans by TThealer56 Birdhouse Plans by TThealer56

Here's the set of plans for the birdhouses I made recently. It did take a bit to create these plans since the plan I use is in my head. Be sure to click on "download" over at the left of the page to get the plans in PDF format. :nod:

It is best to have some slightly advanced woodworking tools, such as a table saw, or band saw, and an electric drill. Other than that, it's hammer and nails and glue. :giggle:

As I mention in the plans, no, I don't make these for sale at the moment. If you want to make them and sell them, be my guest, it's your work, time and materials that go into it!

Gives you a chance to learn more about birds and their behavior, which helps if you want to shoot wildlife. :nod:

There's tons, it depends on your budget, and exactly where you are, and how much you want to care for them. :nod: I'd suggest going to a local nursery and tell them what your thoughts are, and they can point you in the right direction. :nod:

I'm a little behind in looking at deviations and I'd just seen Alice's unpainted urban renewal shot...I thought to myself I need to see if Bob has plans for these and HERE THEY ARE!! :highfive:

I'd love to make a bunch for our house, but we don't have these tools except for the drill :(
...ah well, more toys to add to the birthday list :laughing:

Well, you can use a hand held jigsaw. [link] :nod:
They aren't very expensive, and they are very handy to have. Just make sure when you use one to have the "wrong" side of the material up. Otherwise you'll create a ragged cut on the "show" side of the material. :nod:

Like I say in the artists comments, these plans were really in my head. I'd offer them for sale, but it would cost about $20.00 + shipping for a "raw" house, plus the shipping. :nod:

:nod: I have one like it and it will cut up to a 2" board. On plywood be sure to use a plywood (fine) blade. I don't know how much or little you know about woodworking, so if you need tips, just note me. I'll be happy to help. :nod:

I've never done any - but Caitlin took a semester of woodshop in school :giggle: and my hubby is game for any power tool! I told him I wanted this for Mother's Day :rofl: he was game :D My birthday is sooner but I really need another battery for my new Nikon (it just hit home again today - we have a den of coyotes near'ish the house, the mom was moving the babies...and I ran out of battery :rage: luckily Cait was also shooting so :fingerscrossed: she got a shot or two) I also want a reverse ring too so we'll have to see how far the pennies can stretch...

Check out [link] Better than original equipment and 1/2 the price. I bought 2 batteries for my D90 (same as your batteries)for what one would have cost me. Not only that, but the ones I bought were 2000mah batteries and the riginal Nikons are only 1600mah batteries.
:nod:
You might want to invest in one of these as well. :nod:

You mean you can't keep him busy otherwise? What kind of woman are you! I thought all women took special classes on how to come up with "busy work" for hubbies! :rofl:
