    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

    Good project to do with my kids. Thank you George.


    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!

    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. Clay
