Some of you may remember from last year - Bird House
Home of the Sparrow is a charity in northern Illinois that provides shelter for homeless women and children. They are having a silent auction of bird houses to raise some funds. This one is mine.
Scrap plywood + scrap aluminum + a couple of lunch hours in the workshop (I think mo-i would approve).
I didn’t photograph that the bottom is held on with magnets so you can annually clean the inside of the house.
Nice man, love it. Always love a smart use of magnets! I really enjoy how the aluminum tube celebrates the hanging of the house. I don’t think I’ve really seen that. I think it is great that you volunteer your skills and time for this.
and I do approve, …(not that you’d need that)
as it was time well spent.
it is beautiful!
As my career gets older (I’m forever young ), you spend more time managing and less time doing. It is nice to put pen to paper and get into the shop occasionally. And for getting fulfillment from charity, I prefer the time leg of the time/talent/treasure chair.
