A few weeks ago I made a video on carving a spoon. The design was random and I improvised it in the video. A friend send me a video of Dick Proenneke making a very similar spoon — I was subliminally inspired, I am sure. I began thinking of his adventures and the problem solving he must have done, which led to making a project with just simple tools like Dick Proenneke. Using the birch brach from the “Log Chest” video, I made this simple bird house using a few hand tools. Enjoy!
- Birch log
- Scrap pine.
- Hand saw

Depending on the bird you want to attract, generally speaking you do not want to put a roost in front of the hole. It allows predators to raid the nest in comfort
