When you first look at this birdhouse, you might think it’s a turning project. How else but on a lathe could you make a Round Bird House? Well believe it or not, you don’t need a lathe to build this project.
Instead, the cylinder is assembled from a number of narrow strips. Each strip is beveled on both sides. Then the strips are laid side-by-side and “rolled” into a circle. Don’t worry though — it’s not a complicated process.
Aside from the shape of the round birdhouse, one of the neat things about this project are all the options that are available when building it. Take the roof for example. We built one birdhouse with a galvanized sheet metal roof and another with a copper roof.
Either way, you’ll get the opportunity to try something a little different — working with sheet metal. And you won’t need any special equipment other than a pair of tin snips.
