Carve a Dried Gourd Into a Bird House Carve a Dried Gourd Into a Bird House

What You'll Need
Gourd (very dry)

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.
