Two bird houses with a distinct Mondrian style paint job, I like the finished product and surprisingly the colours seem to make no difference to birds looking for a home, so good all round :)

Here is a little bee hive style bird box I created while wondering what to do next,
there are some bees pyrographed into the front (just visible in the photo), the side is hinged and lifts up for easy cleaning, the entrance hole is 25mm making it ideal for birds of the tit species.

I have recently bought a scroll saw and decided to try it out, and this Map of Japan clock was the first result, I have yet to decide a color scheme (it looks a bit dull at the moment). the map is cut from chipboard which gave a nice texture.
My first bird house, made completely from recycled wood. All joints are screwed and glued for extra strength. The roof is hinged to allow cleaning access, there are drainage holes in the bottom and vent holes just under the lip of the roof as recommended by the RSPB. Also below the entrance hole I have cut grooves to make it easier for the chicks to climb up when they are ready to leave the roost.
