Add a little character to your garden by constructing this easy-to-build birdhouse.
When someone thinks of woodworking, their first thought is ususally building a bird house in the garage with dad or grandpa. This bird house is a little more elegant however. The sweeping shape of the roof line combined with the copper top are just a few of the details that make this birdhouse a gem. It packs some fun techniques into a small, project you can tackle in a weekend.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
