Build a Rustic Birdhouse with Don Polunci. #1358-0316. 1/2 day.
March 16 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm$10. – $55.
Anyone can learn to make a rustic birdhouse in just a few hours. A birdhouse is a simple structure with seven basic parts: two sides, a front and back, a bottom, and two pieces for the top. Power tools are not necessary to cut the wood; it can be done with a handsaw. Using rough-cut lumber, you will construct a rustic birdhouse that can be functional and/or decorative. Choose from several birdhouse designs. There will be a short discussion about nesting birds, feeding birds, and suitable houses for area birds. Participants are encouraged to bring objects (such as old drawer pulls, door knobs, hardware, etc.) from home. Adults and teens welcome; children ages 10-14 must be accompanied by an adult.
NOTE: Students should wear older clothing and/or bring an apron to class.
