A friend asked me to build a unique birdhouse for her porch. I have never made a project like this so it took my a while to to figure out the best way for me to put it together. I hid most of the screws by overlapping the log slats to hide the screws. I also made 2 clean-outs in the back held closed by simple latches made from the same wood so they would blend in. I know that the bark may not stay on but I really liked the look so I left it on most of the project. She is very happy with it and now my wife wants one.
