I've threatened to build a birdhouse for use at my DD's log cabin. Though a miniature replica of her abode is out of the question, I still fancy making the birdhouse resemble a log cabin. My internet "diy log cabin birdhouse" search results show quite a few options from products to kits to books to videos.
But nothing that seems to be within my woodworking skill set.
One alternative I'm considering is, instead of doweling or local tree clippings, building the birdhouse out of paper mache. But the recipes I find to make paper mache waterproof involve chemicals that I fear may be toxic to small avians. One potential solution is to create a plywood box as the interior and fashion the waterproofed paper mache over the box.
What do you think? Have a better alternative?
