I left you with question a couple of weeks ago as to what I was going to make with this wood. My next door neighbour had been getting the roof of his garage fixed and the chippy who was doing it was someone I knew well, he asked if I wanted any of the left over sheet he had been using and I though I could make something with one of the left over pieces so this is what I used it for. It was going to be a small dovecote
The wood is sterling board (Oriented strand board OSB) which is reconstituted wood. I discovered while making the dovecote that this was not the best wood to work with is I will not be using it again
It needed cutting in to the shapes I wanted to use
Most of it was cut into various shapes
Then a couple of pieces painted
The next stage was to fit it all together,
add the roof and make some sides
I also put a door in one piece
This was nearly finished as I had to drill holes in one side for the birds to go in and then paint it
There you go all painted and fitted in place, if you look in the background you can see another I made a couple of years ago for my wife's Birthday. That is not the end of this either my wife has decided she would like another to go out the front of the house. I'm not sure if birds will nest in this one though we have had blue tits nesting nesting in the other and raising young. We will just have to see what happens.
