  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.
  3. Thought I was done making ornaments for the year but I had some special requests for a few more. So, 16 in total this batch. Had never put a hat on a birdhouse ornament before but I kind of like the look of them.
  4. Beautiful day here in south central Pennsylvania. Got my garlic planted and the leaves raked. Our Patriot Turners- @PostalTom added this to the general woodworking forum but it applies to turners, too. We all use glue! Thaks, Tom for a great discussion. Although he was away for a while, @Steve Krumanaker hasn't lost a bit of his turning talents. Steve gave us a peek at his birdhouse ornaments- He also posted one of his segmented birdhouses Please check out both his posts and give him your comme
  5. I have made dozens of segmented plywood Christmas globes for ornaments but had never done a birdhouse ornament with segmented plywood. I like the idea but this one is a little clunky I think. Will have to explore this further!!
  6. This was a project that I had started with my grandson but didn't get finished before he left to go back to Brooklyn. It's a hexagonal(6-sided) birdhouse that we had made from scrap boards that were left over from another project(fencing). If there's one thing that would change, it would be the height of the house..... I could have made two birdhouses from the one. Cutting the six sides for the house was simple and straight forward but finding the miter/bevel angles of the roof caused me much grief. I located a good web page (https://www.drking.org.uk/hexagons/practical/roof/index.html) that h
  7. My own dad, John H. Morris in his shop we built together back in 2005. He lives in the mountains nearby, he is Papa Jack to my wife, Grandpa to our kids, and at 86 years old, he's doing pretty danged good. He loves building birdhouses for the locals where he lives, and he has earned the nickname "Birdman" and he wears it proudly. Actually he didn't even know he had the nickname till just a few weeks ago, he heard it through the grapevine and he was tickled to death to know that he has an official nickname in his community. Love ya Dad! Just thought I'd share to you all my Dad. Clas
  8. Some one mentioned maybe doing this to their poles. I originally built the tall pole for just one bird house but then I decided to add another house and a larger platform. So to offset the extra weight at the top I added the extra pipe on to the bottom of the swing away pole. You have to experiment with the right balance. To work right the top has to be just a little heavier than the bottom . I welded two flat pieces to the bottom of the both poles with holes lining up for a bolt to tie the bottom ends together when in position..To get the houses down, tie a rope on to the b

  10. Dad couldn't make it to our Thanksgiving dinner, he was feeling under the weather and the drive down the mountain would have been a tad precarious, as he was feeling dizzy from the medications he's on. So we told him not to fret, we'll bring him some Thanksgiving the next day. My wife packed up a nice care package of food for him, and my son and I headed up the mountain with his food. We like going up there, it's the mountains. I thought I'd share with you all my Dad's place, it's a neat home, situated up on a ridge over looking some wonderful scenery. Dad showed us some of the bir
  11. Last week I wrote that I had cut and drilled a piece into a precise form only to drop it one the cement floor. I'm sure there are still some pieces there. I looked at the two larger pieces and tried to come up with a way I could still use it. It wasn't happening, until I saw Steve's bird house ornaments. It seemed that each step resulted in a failure of some king. I kept at it, not wanting to admit defeat. So here is the bird house ornament that resulted from so many failures. It has a lot of problems, but I don't dare to so any more with it. It is like a jinx
  12. 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. . .
