Making a Rubik's Cube Birdhouse

I built this birdhouse to look like a classic 1980's Rubik's Cube.  Watch my video of the process and read further for more information and pictures.


To make the birdhouse, I tilted my table saw blade to 45 degrees, then cut six 9" squares with bevels on all sides.  I drilled a 1.5" hole in the front and glued together the sides and top.

I glued a cross piece in the bottom opening so that I would have something to screw the bottom to.  I also drilled some ventilation/drainage holes inside the grooves on the yellow bottom piece.

Just for fun to finish it off, I printed the classic Rubik's Cube logo on a label and stuck it on.

I made a display stand for it.  It's just a square piece of plywood with three boards glued on in the shape of a triangle.  It will probably remain on display in my shop with all of my other crazy birdhouses.  Click here to check those out too!
