Features/Benefits

Our woodland style rustic bird box is designed to show the natural beauty of the oak/pine wood. It has as unpretentious charm being handcrafted by skilled craftsmen.

Our skilled craftsmen aim to turn oak/pine trunks and branches into elegant and quality bird boxes. By studying each piece of wood they decide the ideal location for each part. The idea is not to superimpose a design onto the wood, but work with it and alter is as little as possible. 

Most of the work from removing bark through to assembly and finishing is done by hand.

The body is made from Pine. All other parts including the engravable front panel are made from Oak. There is an oak catch on the front which allows the bird box to be opened for cleaning. An oak hook is located inside the bird box, this should be removed and inserted in one of three holes on the hanging post before final positioning.

All bird boxes are delivered assembled.

Wood
The Rustic bird boxes in Oak and Pine wood originate from natural forests in Poland, Europe, find out more here.

Engraving
This bird box can accommodate 2 lines of 1 inch high engraving on the front panel. The maximum number of carved letters is 11 characters on line 1 and 3 characters on line 2 (including spaces).

The V carved letters are typically 0.2inch/5mm deep, depending on the font type and size. This depth of carving takes a lot of machining time but the result is an inscription which is crisp, clear and readable.

The engraved panel is lightly sanded and then painted with Sadolin Classic so the carved letters are stained the same colour.

Choose how many lines of engraving you require, then type the inscription above the "Add to cart" button. Finally, select your font type from the drop down list and add it to cart. 

We offer free design proof, please choose this option if you require one. 

We aim to make the letters as large as possible, for example if you keep the number of letters on each line low then the letter height is likely to be larger.

Maintenance
Oak bird boxes kept outside require maintenance at least once a year: dry the furniture thoroughly, clean it and work on it with sand paper (grit 100-200) before applying Sadolin Classic, "Polish" colour number 88. We recommend you purchase it here with your bird box, so you have it ready to hand.
