After building some planter boxes with the cut-offs from my pergola project, I was left with a smaller pile of cedar 1×4 off-fall. Although I had to stare at the pile all summer in the garage, I couldn’t quite bring myself to throw it all in the burn box. So I decided to build some birdhouses.The problem was the boards were too small to make a standard rectangular shaped birdhouse box. The solution was a to make them hexagon shaped. Now the pile of cedar is gone and some birds will have a home.
