Hi,

Just finished looking at some of your projects at webshots, I really like what you have done! It seems like I've always made birdhouses, started back when I was around 6 helping my brother then later into a way of making extra spending money since before I was a teen. I did a lot of "stock" birdhouses with a few custom ones as customers wanted (often to look like there summer homes). I have never tired anything as fancy as you have but now I think that will be one of my summer projects.

I also really like the rustic arbor, makes me think of back home where a lot of people did those sort of projects. Thanks for posting!

Ed

thank you Ed i find building birdhouses to be very relaxing and certainly not as physical as building a real home .which i have done many. as far as the arbor you saw ,there are actually 2 of them .both the same size but different patterns

here is a birdhouse i am building now. it is about halfway.

it is very nice to meet you Ed
