Build a Birdhouse with Only Handtools

Friday, June 12, 2020 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm

Lior will walk step by step through building a bird house without having to plug anything in. To actively participate in building your own bird house you will need to acquire both materials and hand-tools. 


Required Materials:

  • Wood. A pine board 5 feet long, 5 inches wide, and a half inch thick is sufficient. Plywood, other woods, or larger dimensions are OK too.
  • 1-2" galvanized nails
  • Exterior Wood glue (Titebond 3)
  • Exterior Paint

Required equipment:

  • Hand Saw
  • Tape Measure
  • Square
  • Drill (powered drill is OK), or coping/fret saw

If you are going to the store to buy tools, the following will do the trick:

  • Medium size carpenter's saw
  • Tape measure
  • Speed square
  • Miter box
  • Coping saw with blades


We recommend Goody's Hardware in East Haven to acquire the items you need.
