Instructions

  1. After you have looked over the drawings and decided which box or boxes to build, lay out the parts, with a square and pencil, on the weather surface. Saw out the pieces, plane the splinters, mark the parts, and put them aside. If the interior surface of the front, back, and sides is smooth, roughen it-really scar it up-with the corner of a rasp. This helps young birds gain a foothold when trying to climb to the hole when exiting the box. Cut back the corners of the bottom piece.
  2. In the back panel, drill a 1/2-in. hole 2 in. down from the top and centered horizontally. (On the downy woodpecker box, center the hole 1 in. down.) Bevel the back 1/8 in. toward the interior surface. On the front panel, bevel 1/8 in. toward the weather surface.
  3. Drill the entrance as shown for each box, using a keyhole saw or expansion bit on the larger boxes. If you have neither, then draw the circle and drill a series of 1/2- to 1-in. holes just inside the circumference. Chew out the hole with a rasp, rounding the edges. Woodpeckers won't mind a few irregularities.
  4. Draw a line across the interior surface of the back, 2-3/4 in. up from the bottom. Extend it across the edges and the weather surface.
  5. Next, draw a line across the interior surface of the front panel, 1 in. up from the bottom, and extend it over both edges.
  6. Draw 1 more line across the interior surface of the right side panel, 1 in. up from the bottom, and extend it across the edges.
  7. To begin assembly, start 2 nails on the weather surface of the right side panel to come out 1/4 in. below the line. Do not get the nails too close to the edges of the side panel, because the bottom edge, to which you will nail the side panel, has the corners cut off. Place the "decornered" bottom on edge, against a wall. Lay the side panel across, with the line matching the interior surface of the bottom. The wall will...
