Bluebird Birdhouse Made From Pallets
This is a very easy project to make for attracting bluebirds to your yard. I wanted to reuse some of the wood I have from with the pallets I broke apart last year. This project uses a combination of industrial strength pallets made from 2x6s and standard pallets which provide slats in the 3/8" to 1/2" thick range. As for the house, I tried to hit the basic bluebird birdhouse dimensions for this build:
- Hole Entry Size: 1.5"
- Hole Distance Above Floor: 6" to 7"
- Floor Dimensions: 4"x 4" to 5" x 5"

Cut 2x6 to 5" x 10"
Draw the roof shape
Ready to be cut
Use a jig or band saw for cut
Front, rear and bottom sides
Cut 1.5" diameter entry hole with a hole saw or Forstner bit
Sand rough edges
Feel free to leave the birdhouse exterior to weather unfinished or stain/paint it. I finished the house with a combination of stain for the bottom and sides and green paint for the roof.
1/4" rope added
It's winter time now, but I expect the birds in the next few months when spring rolls around.
Thanks for viewing.
