Vintage Flour Kitchen Canister and "Gadget" parts come to create an Upcycled Bird House!


I had fun with this one. It started with a vintage Flour Canister Box. From there it was a mix of silver tray pieces, typewriter parts, industrial light indicators a temperature gauge, copper parts and much more. You can see it all for yourself in the pictures. I always try to solder on what I can and the parts that will take solder for a finished look. Others are cleanly attached with properly sized nuts, bolts and washers.

Here are the measurements...
Height: 9.75"; Width (side to side): 7"; Depth (front to back): 8.5".


Pattern or design used: My own design - Brian GadgetSponge
