My wife suggested that I replace some of the sun/hail damaged bird houses. I like to make them out of cedar fencing boards. However, I am stuck at home and must use what I have. I had one nice Pine board and decided to make it a little more complex to make the project last longer. So I made each as a hex house. I cut the boards to length, cut them thru the center lengthwise and ended up with enough pieces to make 2 houses. I have the house bodies assembled and glued with waterproof glue. The bottoms and tops are removable, as you must clean out each year. I checked a web site that gave hole size and they recommended air holes for ventilation, so I left cracks. If I bored holes, the wasps get in and kill the birds. Happens every year. I lined the top with nonstick oven parchment paper so the wasps nests won't stick and I put some vaseline down the top sides about an inch also. Now the problem, The wood that I was going to turn the roofs with is gone. Either some thief came in and got them or I've used them. Oh, I'll find something. Even if I have to use the neighbor fence
