I purchased this wonderful book, "Build Your Own Birdhouses" by John Perkins, as a Hardcover option and used. It came from the collection of books of the Fargo Public Library, Children's Dept. Main Library, based on the stamped information on the first page inside the book. I acquired it as I have many woodworking and Plans books for my build it yourself workshop library. I usually get them in almost perfect condition and in this case great condition, hardbound and protected like a library book is, with a Clear sleeve over the Book Cover and secured like it would be lent out to children of rough enough stock to warrant this protection. This is my all around favorite Bird House Building Book. Mr. Perkins has compiled with plans, writing and fantastic pictures of birds, houses and feeders, the most wonderful of these types of books. And please, if you have seen and read this book and know of a better, please comment on this review with this information and I will also...
Some interesting ideas! This book is timeless - written several years ago but everything continues to be relevant - namely the techniques.. You can make the birdhouses and feeders exactly as shown or modify them to suit your personal tastes. Easy to see why it has the rating that it does.
love making bird houses and yard art
