A few birdhouses carved with a chainsaw. I make a lot of these in normal times a month from now we would start going to art and craft shows where I sell them among many other pieces.
After carving I burn them with a torch, brush and sand. Apply color, some I leave natural. Then put deck and siding preservative on.
I made this video using electrics in the shop all my smaller stuff I use electric. Big carvings are done outside with gas saws
They are a big seller I make several hundred a year, not sure about this year but I am working in the shop like normal.
I love whimsical art (that's mostly what I create too) and the subtle coloring on this one is very well done.
Usually I just sell in peron at shows but these are not normal times.
Yes! The DU Marketplace! I'd consider buying one there or from Etsy. I almost never buy anything from eBay anymore.
Unique. Lucky birds to live in one of these "different" houses. Thanks for posting. Talented woodworker.
Wrens will go into just about anything they are not fussy, a large box they will fill with sticks to the proper hight. Bluebirds like a deep box 5-7 inches deep with a 1.5 inch hole.
Now that our shows are cancelled at least until august, I am thinking more like the whole year.
http://harnettdesigns.com Just hit the online store button I am adding more items weekly wooden kitchen utensils will be up next. Thank you for the interest it is a whole lot of adjustment for everybody.
Just got a big order for birdhouse from a local Farmers Market they are one of my reliable selling points still.
Nice color mix.
Saw your market set up, and those lovely wooden rack and pinion pieces. 👍
this year has been an adjustment, for most been getting by with my work better than I thought a lot of previous show customers have contacted me for items.
