Carve a Dried Gourd Into a Bird House Carve a Dried Gourd Into a Bird House
1. Draw the size hole you want for the birdhouse entrance onto the gourd. The bigger the hole, the bigger the bird you'll attract.
2. With the #125 high speed cutter, remove the material for the entrance hole. Smooth the edges with a #952 grinding stone.
3. Put 4-5 drainage holes into the bottom of the gourd with a #124 high speed cutter. This will help keep the gourd dry.
4. To hang it, put two holes into the neck of the gourd with a #150 drill bit. Run a leather shoeleace through the holes and tie the ends in a knot.
