Dad’s Retirement Project / Craft Show

29 Oct

If you’ve been on the Etsy shop lately, you may have noticed I’ve added a new shop section called Dad’s Retirement Project. It does what it says on the tin!

Dad’s been dreaming of retirement lately and started contributing some of his garden products to the shop which he plans to expand on in the coming years. He works with both wood and PVC. At the moment, the majority of the pieces featured in the shop are his cedar wood nesting boxes for our feathered friends, stenciled and painted by Mom, his partner in crime.

They open up on the side by slipping out a little pin at the back so they’re super easy to clean. The size of the hole attracts creatures like wrens and bluebirds, and they’re perfect resting and nesting places for the winter months when the snow blows in.

He was even featured a few times (and on two different front covers) of Langenbach magazine and in a couple of others. They called him a “master woodworker”.

Here’s his PVC feeder too:

Check it out and keep watch for more…
