Everything was here:
- three wood laths (in my example: 1,60 m x 5 cm x 2 cm)
- a piece of wood in the center
- three screws to mount the laths to the center piece (here: 5 x 40 mm)
- some rope
- three 6 mm pegs
Step 1: The Center Piece
- My laths are 1,60 m x 5 cm x 2 cm.
- The screws are 5 x 40 mm spax.
- Make the centerpiece somewhat larger than the lath are wide and thick enough to easily hold the screws. (In this example: lath is 5 cm wide, the central triangle has an edge length of 5.6 cm.)
Step 2: End Stop
I found some rope in my spare parts box and drilled four holes, some 30 cm below the centralpiece, just fitting the rope (here: 6 mm). Simple knots at the ends give sufficient stability.
Step 3: Provide Some Stability for the Load Using Pegs
Check where it contacts the laths. As the bird house does not really lie steadily on the laths I applied 3 additional pegs (6 mm).
Step 4: Mount the Bird House
Winter may come for the birds in our garden!
