Wow that's great! The last birdhouse I made a bird flew up tacked a condemned sign on it and flew away.

Lol.....these houses are built to attract purple martins the dimensions and the hole size are the recommended sizes for those birds which are supposed to be big time insect eaters.so we will see probably get a family of crows.

I love wood working but I don't have the tools because I don't have the room. Wish I did. I was awesome at it in school, if I must say so.

Lee, that's really nice furniture you make. Talented for sure ! An old neighbor of mine who was the priest of a local church used to make grandfather clocks and raffle them off at the yearly festivals. He was generous enough to make me one, paid for it of coarse but a very talented man to say the least. These clocks are all hand crafted out of raw wood.
Heres my one off clock, he never made two the same....... he passed away a few years back.

I don't have any spare property with easements and such that will allow me to even do that. I've already checked.

That's sweet Moe. I have a clock lady that lives on West Rd and for that size will come to the house for maintenance and repairs. Super awesome lady.
