A little while ago Onster asked to see some of the Houses and Feeders that Hubby makes. Here is a few:

You are right, your hubby is an artist!! So nice. I bet he gets lots of compliments.
I just wanna know how a man who can make something that looks like those feeders and homes do resorts to tying a fence to "fix" it!!!!!

If someone wants one, he will sell. He says they are for our retirement fund. Guess that means we will continue to live in the poorhouse :laughing:

:laughing: The same way he fixed the leak under one of the kitchen sinks, he put a bowl under it so it wouldn't drip on the cupboard floor, that was 6 years ago :crazy:

He also makes birdhouses strictly ornamental for indoor decoration, I will post some pics of them in the Off Topic Forum, I think they are quite something. He also made the benches that they are sitting on, all new lumber finished to look aged.

You should advertise them or set up a booth at craft fairs. :thumbs up

I was wondering the same thing--who empties the bowl? :laughing:

Those are gorgeous feeders and houses, Chris! I love the rustic look :cloud9:

How long does it take him to finish one from start to rustic look? :D

:laughing:Too funny, who empties the bowl MOI I mentioned to him a couple of weeks ago about it, he said "Ithought I fixed it" so I said to him if you call this fixing it and whipped the bowl out, he just chuckled and went on his merry way.

I don't know really how long it takes him to do it Hazel, he goes down to his shop and putters and putters he likes to putter.:rolleyes: As far as renting a booth somewhere, he probably will on day when he has more.

Here is one more, I know this took a spell to do, he notched each little log and then chinked them, just like a real one.

I love that last one too!! If he ever did start selling them he would have to price them waaayy above what I could afford after spending that much time on it!!! They are all very unique!!
