He Makes Bird Houses Out Of Old Barn Boards
My hobby is making bird houses out of old barn boards, laminated birch bark, cowboy boots, and work boots. I also use natural products such as tree bark, twigs, fungus, moss, and so forth. They're real conversation pieces. Over the years I've made more than 700 bird houses, and no two are exactly alike. I even number and sign them. Some of them look like barns or churches and are made out of stones held together by tile cement. The churches have stained glass windows in them.
  The birdhouses sell for $50 to $175. I keep many of them on display at my home. (William Pennington, 25163 Co. 25, Akeley, Minn. 56433 ph 218 652-2141)
