1. Step 1 Make the frame for your nesting box. Butt two sheets of the 32-inch plywood up to the two sheets of 16-by-12 inch plywood to form a box. Make sure the ends are flush. Glue all the ends where they butt together. Using your screws and screw gun, sink in four screws on the 12-inch sides and eight screws on the 16-inch sides. Make sure to glue and screw all four sides. When finished you will have a 32-by-16 inch box frame. 2. Step 2 Take your last remaining 32-inch piece of wood and put it in the inside-center of the box. Find the center by using your tape measure to measure exactly 8 inches up. Mark the center point on both sides with your pencil. At the exact center point, attach one side of the 32-inch piece inside the box. Then attach the other side using screws and glue. 3. Step 3 Install your nesting box dividers. Using a tape measure and pencil, measure out 8 inches along the top. Put one of the 12-by-8 inch pieces of plywood as a divider at that point. Glue and screw it down. Work your way around the box and every 8 inches, glue and screw in a divider. When finished you will have an eight-compartment nesting box. 4. Step 4 Fill the nesting boxes with straw. This will give the pigeons a soft, safe place to build their nests. Put the nesting boxes in a pigeon coop and your pigeons will happily move in. hope that helps 20 days without anything is a long time!!!!!
