Intro: Double Bird House Planter
This is my first time doing an instructable. I was completely unprepared so bare with me. My next project will be much more details I promise.
My mother wanted a bird house so I decided to make a double birdhouse with a planter box in the middle.
Step 1: Frame Up
I skipped a bunch of steps here due to not recording the measurements.
I used 1/2" x 12" untreated pine because I planned to paint and seal the wood.
This stage had all of the walls completed. I used my finish nailer to frame everything up.
Step 2: Added Roof
This was a simple step adding the roof. Cut 45's for the joining.
Right after this was done, I added wood filler to all of the cracks.
I used 80 grit sand paper to make every spot smooth.
Step 3: Base
I went cheap on this next step. I used reclaimed wood from work. I used 1 - 2x4 and 1 - 2x6.
4 - 45's were cut for the top joint and the bottom. I used my big boy nailer for this step.
Step 4: Painting
I decided to paint it all a maroon. The reclaimed wood looked better before it was paint. Lesson learned.
I added drain holes to the planter box and used to old rusty nails for the bird stand area.
3 coats of pain later, you have the finished product
