Choosing a beautiful birdhouse that will transform any backyard into a popular nesting site for feathered friends is easy with this design, construction, and installation guide. With photos and drawings, this book outlines the use of Power tools and accessories, how to measure, mark, and lay out, what kinds of wood to use, adhesives and fasteners, and paints and caulking. It provides complete instruction for four projects -- the twin gable house, log cabin, wagon wheel, and Victorian manor. Each project includes full-color photos of the finished bird-houses, step-by-step instructions with photos of the cutting, assembling, and finishing, a full set of measured drawings, and a parts and materials list. It displays more than 50 full-color photographs with descriptive captions of some of the hundreds of extraordinary birdhouses finished by the authors.
