Wood Turning

First Birdhouse

I turned this birdhouse in two pieces. The bottom is a piece of cherry that I bought at a garage sale for two dollars. I am not sure what kind of wood the top is made of. The blank I turned it from was given to me for free in a big box of blanks that someone was clearing out of their basement. The birdhouse is ten inches tall. The top is seven inches in diameter and the bottom is five inches in diameter. I put a coat of Tried and True danish oil on the outside only.
