Building a Round, Coopered Birdhouse
When you first look at this birdhouse, you might think it’s a turning project. How else but on a lathe could you make Round Bird House? Well believe it or not, you don’t need a lathe to build this project. Instead, the cylinder is assembled from a number of narrow strips. Each strip is beveled on both sides. Then the strips are laid side-by-side and “rolled” into a circle. Don’t worry though — it’s not a complicated process.
