Whether you buy this as an in home sculpture or an outside useable birdhouse this will surely be a conversation piece. I take a great deal of time preparing each piece that goes into the making of the birdhouse it's all about the details! I spend between 10 to 15 hours to create these one of a kind masterpieces and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do when I am making them. Removable base for cleaning.
This birdhouse is aptly named, "Hobbit Birdhouse" due to the look and feel of the house with its crooked and twisted irregular shapes.
- Face: The face of the house is made from live edge Maple Burl with a bamboo entrance cover. Stained birch and molding accent the maple burl at the roof line with a blue gemstone and wood burned tree and mountain scene on a pear log cookie. A double tyne antler section functions as the entrance post of the birdhouse.
- Roof: The roof is made from multiple sections of live edge cherry limb and framed at a 22.5 degree angle. The ridge line is topped with 2 joined sections of imported Paduck.
- Back: The backside emulates a traditional log cabin with chinking and made from Lebanon cedar boards.
- Bottom: Spalted Maple is removable for cleaning once the screws are removed. Acorn accents sit on the base and a stylishly shaped foot that has been burned to add detail and contrast supports the house.
- Height: This birdhouse stands approximately 15" tall x 8.5" deep and 8.5" wide.
- Each house has 2 coats of exterior urethane and 1 heavy coat of wax for extended durability. If needed, you can add a spray coat of urethane each year after cleaning the house to help keep the wood protected but the wax should hold up for a long time.
