20 Upscale Homes for Sophisticated BirdsBook - 2008
Few woodworking projects are as popular and easy as building a birdhouse--and with just a dollop of creativity, plus this book, it's simple to turn it into an amazing avian architectural wonder. Architect and commercial birdhouse builder Richard Banks reveals his savvy streamlined techniques for efficiently constructing a basic house, and then applying ingeniously doable methods for transforming its identity. All it takes are embellishments made of common off-the-shelf, home-store items: a touch of trim, a dab of dowel, a flourish of finial, and...presto! The birds can move right into a classic Victorian, exotic Casbah, A-frame cedar chalet, or bright bold blue home. The 20 projects also include techniques for special finishes such as stenciling and decoupage, along with informative sidebars.
