DIY Wooden Security Camera Birdhouse: Big Bird Is Watching

 |  |  |  |  |  |  April 27, 2021

Cleverly shaped like the sort of closed-circuit surveillance camera you might see on the side of a building, Instructables user JoopB1 has outlined step-by-step instructions for how to build your own fake security camera birdhouse out of scrap wood (in this case leftover 12mm plywood, but the dimensions can be adjusted for almost any thickness plywood). Let’s get building!

JoopB1 clearly states at the beginning of the Instructable that “the process is quite simple and it’s not difficult to make your own version of this birdhouse,” although I have my doubts. I mean not for most people, just myself. I’ve found that if a project involves measuring and cutting, those measurements end up wrong, and fingers end up cut.

Could you imagine taking a stroll through the woods and looking up and seeing one of these things? What a hoot! You know, like the sound an owl makes. Because we’re talking about birds. This is a post about birds.
