Octagonal Birdhouse

From the vertical siding to the pitched roof and detailed trim pieces, this eight-sided birdhouse has many of the features you’d expect to find on a real house.

When most people think of woodworking, they imagine someone nailing together a birdhouse in the garage. But, they're not picturing this birdhouse. The octogon shape allows room for four different cubbies inside of it. The shape, combined with the painted finish sets itself apart from all others. Plus, you'll find the woodworking is rewarding.
