Step 12: Filling in the Other Side of the Box

  When step 10 is finished, and everything is totally dry, it's time to glue down all these elements on the empty side. You are retracing steps 5 through 10. Remember that the rest of the box must be completely dry. I made one years ago that I didn't check for dryness, and had to cut it off my worktable, and scrape a lot of hard work off the box to start again! Find some fun thing to do while you are waiting for your glue to dry!
Beautiful!&nbsp;I&nbsp;also love the crack finish. This would be cool to make a bird house out of =) Great job very clear instructions!<br /> <br />
Crackle not crack <br /> My bad &gt;.&lt;<br /> <br />
Thank you for that idea. You know I was also thinking of a bat house, because they like the close fit, but the lid would have to be attached against the wind. I&nbsp;have been trying to find out if they texture the inside walls of bat houses. A board on the bottom inside, glued down, plus a new little hole on the front! I&nbsp;read an article that many places are making their bird house entries smaller so that cowbirds can't get in them--they lay eggs in other bird's nests like the cuckoo and are enjoying a population explosion. I&nbsp;am going to make sure and tell the carpenters about any multi-use Idea, and think up a decoupage for a bird house--which could be sealed with outdoor epoxy. Great idea!<br />
Thanks!&nbsp;Ya&nbsp;I heard about that too. This is my new account =) (so same person)<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Cheers,<br /> Meheh<br />
Wow, great project, I love the crackle finish.<br />
Thanks! I&nbsp;only wish manufacturer's would stop messing with crackle kits. The best one on the market, Anita's, went out of business!&nbsp; It was all the rage, and then suddenly no longer &quot;cool.&quot;&nbsp; <br />
