A few days ago we and our guest built this bluebird nest box following plans from the North American Bluebird Society. The box is made from an old oak board we found on our property last year, while the roof is a pine board scrap stained with food-safe stain. Now to decide where to hang it!
Projects like this are 1) useful for our goal to be a habitat farm, 2) useful for helping guests feel like a contributor and successful right away, especially if it’s been a while since they’ve felt that, and 3) useful for practicing reading instructions, problem-solving little wood-working hang ups, and managing irritability when things aren’t instantly easy.
