sides of the wood u til it is smooth to the touch (This may take some time)
Step 4: Attachment
To attach your sanded pieces you need to use wood glue and a staple gun.
Use the glue to bind the peices together so they are sealed for weather. while holding them together use the staple gun to place 3-6 staples in the wood to secure it.
If any pieces are sticking out use a hammer to bend them down so they don't poke the bird.
