           I make all the parts of this miniature birdhouse on a lathe. The tiny perch and finial are probably the most challenging. The body is hollowed out to reduce weight and make room for tiny inhabitants. The roof is knurled with a specialized tool to resemble an acorn's cap. A mortise and tenon joint secures the body and roof together.
