Getting together with family at Christmas is a tradition I have enjoyed since I was a child. Food, gift giving and decorations is what makes Christmas a special time of year. Years back my wife’s family started a tradition to exchange tree ornaments, pulling names so everyone ends up with an ornament. I pulled my brother in laws name, he is a collector and a woodworker, so I decided to make his ornament in lieu of purchasing a store bought. The year was 2006, I decided on a small birdhouse ornament. I continued making a birdhouse ornament each year. When my son finished college he mentioned he would love an ornament as well, now I make two!
Each birdhouse ornament is unique in its own way. I theme them off of jobs I had, building trades, and events.
