    I watched the entire video with thoughts of when I was 12 years old helping my Dad build out the basement with knotty Pine for a party room. Thank you


    Thanks for the video, guys! I was just looking for a simple birdhouse to build with my 4 year old son. He will love it!

    Thanks George. When my grandson was younger, his first birdhouse build had nail holes pre-drilled in the front, back and top, making it easier for inexperienced hands to get the nails in straight!

      Hello and thanks for your question. There isn’t a written cutlist, but everything is described starting at the 1:10 mark in the video.
      To recap, here are the cuts that you want to make. The 5.25″ size is not critical. It’s important to have everything cut to the same width, and as George suggested, it’s best to rip both sides of the cedar board so that you create a clean and straight edge.
      (qty. 3) 9″ x 5.25″(qty. 1) 4″ x 5.25″(qty. 1) 7.5″ x 5.25″(qty. 1) 13″ x 5.25″

    George, Great video. I plan to do this with my grandsons. As you well know, it is important that loose clothing, such as sleeves, be secured so it cannot get caught in tools and drill bits.
