 I call them "bird houses". Not for-real birds, and nowhere for wasps to hide.

Thanks guys for your comments. Here's six more collages .(wood detail parts) Bill I got one bird, one chicken, two brass ducks and two fish. On collage #one a small wood bird, was a part of something I got at a yard sale. On collage #two two wood birds I cut out of pine using bird one as a pattern. On collage #three is a  unfinished blank still needs shaping, and  the eye and beak added . On collage #four four wood tulips painted white over a black base. On collage #5 and collage #6 old clothes pins  cost me 1.00 each at the Antique Mall near my home.

I guess that's what you build when you're not building models. I hope you have a lot of display space at your house. Happy New Year. -- Russ

Thanks guys for your comments. Russ, I look at these works as my day job. It gives me something to balance things out and help me keep busy. I have a shop for my model work that was build the same time I build my home.  The birdhouse steam-punk statues and barn wood collages shop is in a small shed with some covered porches with eight work benches and a lot of storage.

Here's two more collages using old stair stringer for the base:





Here's two more collages:

It's interesting how your models are very real and technical while the collages are impressionistic and artistic. Few would guess the same person could create both. -- Russ
