Make this rustic looking yet attractive birdhouse entirely from boards salvaged from free shipping pallets!
Using wood from recycled pallets just makes sense...not only do you save money making this original design but you also help the environment by saving trees and keeping used pallets out of landfills.
Full-size patterns and instructions are included to make this four bedroom condo with removal cleanout panels. Coat with clear sealer or a color wash to allow the texture of the recycled boards to show through or paint your birdhouse a solid color. (22" tall)
NOTE: Pine boards or low-cost fence boards can also be used to make this fun project in lieu of salvaged pallet boards.
Approx. 4 standard wood pallets
One 4 x 4 x 72" to 96" long post (for outdoor display)
One 4 x 4 x 15" long post (for supports on outdoor display)
Places to find pallets - smaller local companies that receive larger inventory items such as appliance stores, garden stores, nurseries and local lumber yards. Do a search on craigslist.org using search words "wooden pallets" or "pallets". Drive through the nearest indusrial area.
Saw: Table saw, scroll saw or jig saw
