  1. I will tell you up front. I stole this idea. I belong to a turning group on mewe and one of the turners there posted pictures of some birdhouse ornaments. They were stunning with a really different roof and a superb glossy finish. Anyway, I knew I had to try and figure out the look. It took me a couple attempts before I realized, the roof is nothing more than a very small natural edge bowl, almost. This is my first successful attempt, rough, with no finish but it's definitely a look I'll explore further, probably next Christmas season, good Lord willing. The body is from a small sycamore limb
  2. Added some little birds to a few of the birdhouse ornaments. They are quick and fun to turn but gluing them up and on is kind of tedius.

  5. I have built some fancy birdhouses for my wife. I used fencing Cedar because it weathers good. Well, I thought it did. Now a few years later, all of them are badly cracked or weathered away. I must also add that they were hit by some big hail. (That I can do nothing about.) However I am up for suggestions on a better wood or perhaps a finish that would help them last longer. The Colorado sun is brutal and destroys most wood in short order. I am not going to repair or rebuild till winter, so there is no rush. Birds are now starting their nests and I discovered how bad they were when I cl

    Red birds

    No where near done yet so these colors will change as I squirt on the finishing touches.. I have also decided the best possible place for viewing would be in a very dark surrounding..like with no flashlight then you see nothing. The snow is the only place that has any clear over the stains so no telling what will show up next.. Nothing glued down yet so I still got time to play around with it.. For sure the frame will turn green..
  7. Yes I like to start with the hardest parts to color first... Then I can stop holding my breath till the next day.. but until I put the clear on I am still in the dark as to what these things will end up looking like black birds or grackles???
  8. Just to see how hard it might be on my small brain!! To leave out things and add different things to this original picture and still make the right proportions in size... I am using Rapid Resizer to try and guess the right size of things as to where I will be inserting them in this picture...Its truly a head scratcher thingy. First picture is what I am starting with and next picture is where I am at in my world of changes... Next picture I might get a few things to suit but not I am wondering. I found this front portion of a model A and since I needed more of something on th
  9. Some of you have seen the bird houses I built. Every year we get birds, but every year wasps make nests in the houses. Even if the birds have a nest, they run them off or kill them. I've experimented and have finally found a solution. I bought some thin Teflon sheets and put them on the underside of the roof, figuring that if their nest can't stick to the roof, they won't build. I have 5 bird houses and 4 had birds, no wasps. One I forgot to put it in had a BIG wasp nest. (Teflon spray did not work) The other big problem is hail, we've had it as big as baseballs and it can destroy a hous
  10. I wasn't going to build any more bird cage ornaments. That changed. My wife was showing one to a very dear friend and she loved it. Then she said," Ron will make you one, wouldn't you?" Both looked at me and I didn't want to be the Grinch. There is so much detail and tedious work involved and it takes hours...........OH WELL I made this one about a quarter inch bigger in dia and a bit heftier. I used South American marble wood and that was a mistake. It is VERY heavy and hard. Drilling tiny holes successfully is difficult ever in soft woods. I did mess up on one piece and had to rema
  11. Ron Altier posted some bird cages and they were really beautiful . I really want to try some of those. I made a few more birdhouse ornaments to add to inventory.

  14. I got an idea about making a bird cage tree ornament. I worked at it until it came out this way. I had to innovate as I went. It is about 3" high. I have big clumsy hands and this was a real challenge. If I do it again, I will make some changes to make it easier. The cage bars are used in jewelry making, no idea how they use it.
  15. It will be a couple weeks before I can turn anything new but Christmas is coming!! Time to start turning ornaments! Here's a few from last year. . .
