Watch my process on how I create my one-of-a-kind birdhouses. Click this link: https://www.etsy.com/shop/BirdhousesByMichele#about I will update my videos often with a new project. It's always fun to see how others work and create. Enjoy! Cheers!

Find well built, handmade, handcrafted Birdhouses, Bird Feeders, Bug Houses and Bat Houses that can bring your garden to life. I've also created ladybug homes where our little ladies in armor can take refuge at night. Bee houses are in the works!

There is quite a bit of work involved in building these one-of-a-kind birdhouses, bee, bug, bat houses and all my woodworking creations. Plus, they are built strong and will last long. How I know this? I have them in my garden and they've been there for years, through rain, snow, freeze and sun. The wood is 5/8 inch thick, not thin like most you see in the stores. Plus I use quality glue and nails that are meant for the outdoors, along with the paint (exterior only).
So...If you ask yourself, why should I spend this amount? Well... I feel it's worth it, on the quality, the time it takes to build and the effort I've made to ensure my product is sturdy, well made and all the attention to the details on adornments and such.

This is my full time job and how I make my living, as well as bringing in an extra income. It is a craft I've mastered and do my best to keep the cost down. All handcrafted, by me, Michele, in the USA.

Nature is springing into action and making way to our gardens. Flourishing gardens work well and look beautiful with added colorful elements that invite good insects to aid in protecting our crops and flowers. It's natures way of bringing balance to the earth.

About

The Woodworker

~ Watch my video on the about page where you can see that I make all my creations myself. I've had so many people ask me if I get the bird boxes from China and then embellish them. Nope. All my woodworking is done with my own two hands and all the designs as well.

~ I've been blessed with a book company, CICO Books, Ryland, Peters & Small, London and New York, that asked me to create a how to book on building birdhouses. Now I have two books under my belt and feel very proud that I'm a published Author and have accomplished many things in my life.

HOW IT BEGAN
~ I've discovered how much fun it is to watch birds, studying their habits and learning what certain garden birds like in birdhouses. Building birdhouses for cavity nesting birds not only satisfies my creativity, it helps birds find safe places to raise their young.

~There's never a dull moment in my adventures of finding new things to embellish or construct my birdhouses with. My walks with my lady friends always turns out to be each of us carrying some kind of object back home that will be a part of one creation or another. I love them for that...supper supportive.

~ Designing, engineering and constructing well built birdhouses for birds since 2008 with accomplishments of a ‘How To Book’ Handmade Birdhouses and Feeders, Published by Cico Books, which is in several languages. You can find my book in my supply shop here www.etsy.com/listing/481437192

~I've been featured in three magazines such as Birds & Blooms, Handmade Living, Long Leaf Style, Bises Magazine of Japan and now Roger's Gardens of Newport Beach. I feel truly blessed with all and hope to be in more.

~ Wood birdhouses are made from raw untreated fence material which makes it easier on the birds by allowing the roughness of the interior for birds to grab, along with a dowel that protrudes through for extra grabbing power. Each birdhouse I build has a unique roof design, by me, which allows for ventilation air flow on each underside of eaves. Every decorative bird house or functional birdhouse is equipped with a clean out door on either the right or left hand side for nest removal. Whether you choose to use it indoors for decorative home accent or hang it on your patio, tree, fence or just sitting on a shelf, it's meant for small cavity nesting birds. Birdhouse accent materials are adhered with clear silicone that is weatherproof and freeze proof for that extra longevity outdoors. I use quality glue, nails and decorative screws to hold my birdhouses together.

~All birdhouses are constructed by me with consideration of the bird’s wants, needs and functionality. Each birdhouse is equipped with a clean out door for proper nest removal, either on right or left side, as well as the roof. Most of my bird houses hang from heavy wire attached to the roof edge, which you can easily hang from decorative iron planter stands, tree limbs and open eye hooks.

~Handcrafted functional birdhouses for birds nesting needs or to use as home decor. I create them with pride and do my best to use quality materials to ensure they will last. Weather will do its part on the birdhouse of course, but if you varnish each year with Marine Varnish you will enjoy these handmade birdhouses for years to come.

~Creating bird feeders for many hours of enjoyment in watching birds gather in your garden is a great way to earn birds trust. Everything is HANDMADE by me and hand painted. Note: The bird feeders listed are pre-made and ready to hang. If you're wanting a special bird feeder custom made it will be at a custom special order cost. Inquire by contacting me via Etsy conversation.
~Got bats? I build bat houses too! Bats eat 1000 mosquitoes and hour! That pretty impressive and it's a good idea to encourage these winged mammals to take refuge by providing a house they can sleep in during the day and get those pesky bugs at night.
