    Hey guys ,
    Like to thank Mark & Trish for sharing the "Bird House Condo" plans & info.
    I started to cut & build, have some pictures show & tell.
    Machine: PhlatPrinter MK3
    Router: BOSCH Colt / Pony Router
    Speed: # 5 setting / 26500 RPM
    Bit: BOSCH Strait Mortising / Double Flute Solid Carbide 1/8" x 7/16" # 8521MIC
    Feed Rate: 50 IPM
    Plunge Rate: 80 IPM
    Multi-Pass: .125" x 2
    This set up cuts really clean and parts are nice.

    Thanks..

    Awesome job Al! :doubleup:
    Thanks for sharing this with us
    Really nice work.
    We were able to get some paint on the one we are working on as well as the small cedar roofs complete. We also went though and caulked the seams and holes but need to do it again as the caulk shrinks.
    Mark and Trish

    That is really cool! Perhaps I should cut one of those out. My girlies would have a ball painting it up over the CHRISTmas break.

    Nice work there, Al!

    Here are some new pics of the Bird House. Roof is done, need to do the very top. The shingles took awhile, used a clear coat on top. Building is all primed & sanded for paint, need to add singles above bird hole and prime base..

    I have to hide this post from my wife. I have too many projects as it is-and if she sees your photos, I'm done for!

    Seriously awesome work, Al!

    I can't believe you literally shingled it. Man, can you come and do my roof too? :D

    Nice work. How much do you charge rent for this upscale condo? :banger:
