I started by laying out my cutting patterns on my various pieces of wood. As you can see I try to lay it out so as to get the most from each piece of wood.
I cut out my pieces using the really cool Proxxon table saw. It is so easy to use!😉
And then I sanded all my pieces using the Proxxon delta sander This is my new best friend. It gets into all the corners, and smooths all my curves. Best of all, I can switch back and forth between coarse and fine grits reusing them over and over. They attach with hook and loop like Velcro only better. It has an adjustable speed too.
Ok, I got my pieces ready now. So next I glue my cedar fence to my ceramic floor and clamp it up. I leave it overnight to dry good and solid.
I had given my walls and roof pieces to Misty to paint up pretty. She did a nice job and they look great! I glued my corner pieces in and clamped them and let dry. Next I glued on my roof and secured it with rubber bands.
Check out the final piece. I just need to plant it in the ground and the birds will love it.
