Books and More Books

not enough hours in the day

Book Birdhouses

What a clever idea!  Take a book with great illustrations, photocopy the cover and a couple of those illustrations, and make a birdhouse from them.  Besides the Tom Sawyer  birdhouse shown, you can also get Winnie the Pooh, To Kill a Mockingbird, and The Wizard of Oz.  Notice the unusual perches such as a corn cob pipe, honey dipper and witch’s broom.  My husband has half a garage full of woodworking equipment so I’d love to see him try something like this.  I do think the price tag is a bit high at $120.
