    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.

      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″
      Thanks

    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!
