An illustration of what can be done with gourds. $85
This gallery shows how some of the varieties can be used. Most of these gourds are for sale — please inquire. We also craft gourds to order if the order is within our technical capabilities.
All our bird houses have drainage holes in the bottom and are coated with Helmsman Spar Varnish. These houses should last a long time if you bring them in during the winter and occasionally renew their finish with exterior polyurethane.
Prices for plain bird houses with a poly coating:
- Small $8.50
- Medium $12
- Large $15
- Most painted birdhouses are between $15 and $20
- Chip-carved martin houses $25
- “Curly” extra-long handled dipper cat bird houses $40
I also paint custom cats for $45. Send a description or a photo, and I’ll ship a “custom cat” in two weeks if possible (check first!)
Prices do not include shipping.
