Backyard Bat BoxesMy son and his buddy each made a bat box out of a cedar fence board. They learned about rabbits and dadoes. We used Titebond II and 4d galvanized nails to assemble.

Faithful Execution

Furnished content.

Faithful ExecutionThis is from The Woodsmith Shop, although I think the basic concept predates their show. Marc Spagnuolo has some interesting boxes with similar design and I think he credits Dave Knipfer. I made this one a bit larger than the Woodsmith plans. I also used their joinery approach with dowels, although I think there is a much easier and more accurate way using tongue and groove cut with the same set up as the bottom. I used Brusso JB-103 stop hinges and lined this one in black felt, but now I wish I had used green. This was a prototype of sorts as I plan to make a bunch of them and also incorporate photo transfers on the bottom of the lid. Stay tuned and thanks for watching.
