steel scraps
There is a hinge on top that allows for cleaning

Welded birdhouse. I took a welding class at my local community college. This bridhouse was my first project made completely out of scraps from the steel yard.

Noelle writes: Hi Mary! I added a picture of the inside. I put a piano hinge on top for access. I'm not planning on sealing it. The steel should last a long time without corroding. I live in a rainy area so it should get more rusty. I'm into rusty junk so I don't usually paint my steel stuff:) Posted: 10:30 am on July 22nd
