    John, did you use any paint or lacquer for the wood ?

    Hong I use a product called Thompsons water seal. There are a few eco friendly stains that can used too .

    John, how long does that seal seem to last before you consider reapplying?

    I think the water seal is good for 3 or 4 years and then I just let the wood turn grey.

    I just put this 18″ diameter birdfeeder up this afternoon . Total time 3 hours from start to finish , build and install.
    It holds 2 litres of bird seed . The reason I made it was because the larger birds like the doves and blue jays won,t go in the feeders with the plastic bottle .

    John L,

    These are works of art. Amazing. How long does it take you to build a typical one bedroom?

    Wow… That is very cool. Looks like you have the construction down to a science! It would take me two hours of contemplating before making the first cut.

    John. I wish I have the chance to visit your place

    Do you prep by pre-cutting the boards then focus on assembly or do you cut as you go?

    I usually rip enough lumber into logs to build 5 or 10 houses at a time and then cut everything else as I go . Some of the smaller simpler houses I can cut most of everything to build them at once .A lot of the cuts are done by eye so I usually do them as I go .

    Do you cut more as spare for the next project ?
