Build a Birdhouse - Bird House Plans

To build a birdhouse, you don't need many tools, but there are a few that make building bird houses simple and easy.  Outside of the essential carpentry tools, the only tools I used to build these projects were: a miter saw, a finish nailer, and a power drill (to drill the hole so that the birds can get in).

I hope you enjoy building these bird house plans and the other woodworking projects featured on mycarpentry.com.  As you build each project, you may discover your hidden carpentry talents, and think of new ideas for your own custom carpentry creations.

The General Store - this birdhouse gets its name because it has the look of the store front of an old country general store.  It was made from a single 1" x 4" cedar fence board.  It took less than five minutes to build and, since the fence board was used, the only cost was the brads and wire that it took to hang it from the tree.
