Here is a complete, down-to-the-last-detail guide for building attractive, sturdy, and genuinely inhabitable wooden birdhouses that will add a touch of natural beauty to garden, backyard, or anywhere else they are placed. Step-by-step instructions, clear diagrams, and many helpful illustrations and tables are included. All designs can be adapted to the use of simple hand tools ― saw, hammer, screwdriver ― making these projects ideal for woodworkers of all ages and levels of experience.
Includes clear, easy-to-follow coverage for these topics: the selection of woods, helpful construction tips and techniques, hanging and supporting birdhouses, inspection and cleaning, proper placement, construction of pest guards, and much more.
More than just a collection of projects, this complete guide shows not only how to construct birdhouses, but also how to insure that birds will actually be able to nest in them. It even shows how to attract specific species: bluebirds, doves, finches, swallows, and many others. Included is much valuable and practical information not found in the usual craft book: nesting requirements for each species, proper size of entrance holes, data on the habitats and behavior of particular types of birds, and more.
The rewards and satisfaction of building your own well-designed, durable birdhouse make this book a welcome addition to the library of the experienced craftsman as well as beginning and intermediate woodworkers.
