Birdhouses You Can Build in a Day 3.6 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Lots of different ideas, very cute houses.

The book has great pictures but that is where it ends. It can be used for ideas but because the cutting measurements are inaccurate I would not recommend this book. We also found that not all the bird houses had the directions with them, the bluebird house shows 2 houses but only has written directions for one. I was very disappointed. A beginning woodworker would become very discouraged.

The book has good designs and lots of them. The only thing missing is the pitch/degrees of the roofs for the houses. One house built had nest in it within 24 hours of being put up.

Book includes dimensional chart for various species. It covers a good range of materials and construction techinques.
