Make a Birdhouse!

Here is a simple way to make a birdhouse out of that one last 6" piece of plywood you weren't sure what to do with or maybe a piece you purchased from a recycling store at a landfill or even one you salvage from Home Depot's dumpster!

The above design will leave you with a scrap of roughly 2"x20" (a great size for a stake if you grow tomatoes!!)

Here is another design:
This design leaves you with 10 3/4" x 5 1/2" (Small table top perhaps??)

I made one of my own....well I made two, What can I say? The red roof one was fun, the "landing post" I like to call a paint brush handle! ..Nothing goes to waste in this house.

I also put to extra pieces on the inside of the roof to hold it in place while in use, but is easily removed for cleaning, which is essential!

On the other hand, if you have a piece of wood that is half this size, simple remeasure the drawn design shown and you'll be attracting a different type of bird! Use your imagination, you could even use that old license plate from 3 cars ago you've had sitting around and you were about to throw out AS THE ROOF!!
