It's bigger on the inside. This is a Tardis Birdhouse. It stands 9" tall and it is made of pine. I used a pine board from a big box store that was 6" wide. I was able to cut this into the desired dimensions for the actual birdhouse. I used a 1/4" piece for the top, and a cut dowel rod for the light. I painted the box blue and sketched out the design for each side of the Tardis. I found the labels online and adhered them to the birdhouse for the finishing touches. The bird-hole is cut to 1 3/8". It can be used indoors as a decoration or as an actual birdhouse outside.
